Think you're better than Yost or Sveum? Try it! Make a lineup!

So to go along with my lineup analysis post, I've calculated the run value for every brewer player with over 100 ABs for every lineup slot, as well as some platoon values for selected players. Now I can find the optimal lineup for the Brewers 2008 season.

But now I ask you - can you?

We're assuming that every player listed below can finish a full season (or in the case of Branyan, a full season as the lefty half of a platoon). I want to see how well you guys can make a lineup. You might be surprised at what the optimal lineup actually is.

RULES -

1. You must fill each position.

2. You will have some platoon options. If you use a platoon, you must post two SEPARATE lineups for vs. RHP and vs. LHP.

3. Platoons will be counted as vs. RHP 2/3 of the time, vs. LHP 1/3. This is crude but it tends to work well for platoons.

4. Each lineup must include a pitcher. The pitcher's spot is counted at 65% pitcher batting, 35% league average pinch hitter batting.

OPTIONS FOR EACH POSITION.

C: Kendall

1B: Fielder, Fielder/Branyan Platoon

2B: Durham, Hall, Weeks, Counsell, any platoon of those.

SS: Hardy, Counsell, Hall, any platoon.

3B: Hall, Counsell, Hall/Branyan, Hall/Counsell, Counsell/Branyan.

OF: Kapler, Hart, Cameron, Braun, any platoon.

Whoever makes the best lineup wins some pride. Sorry, I don't have anything to offer!
