Is Doumit in LF? (You've got two catchers listed)Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

Hah, RotoWorld didn't get the lineups right... I'll see if I can't find another source.

I'm not big on bunting but that was a pretty nice attempt by Revere.

The Rays are a small market team yet always seem to have better pitching than the Twins.
Is this a matter of better scouting, better player development or something else?

But remember that their success is recent. They had a decade of picking in the top five every season. During that same period, the Twins rarely drafted higher than 15th. I'm not discounting the Rays' success but the real test will be their player development on the guys they draft when they had to pick 20th or later in the draft every June. Since Price was taken with the first overall pick in 2007, Tampa Bay has not had a drafted player contribute to their major league team. Not entirely unexpected but still something to consider.
