I'm so not a fan of this order, but what do I know? As a girl, I was told to go play softball, and I did. So, let it begin and play ball!

Swap Suzuki and Hicks, and are you OK with it? (And maybe then swap Hicks and Dozier?) I presume they plan to do everything they can to take the pressure off Hicks to start the season; if he thrives then there is plenty of season left to move him up.
If you want Suzuki out and Pinto in, well, similar reasoning probably applies there too.
If both Hicks and Pinto are clicking, by mid May the lineup could look more promising. Or, if Willingham and Plouffe are scuffling, no amount of re-ordering will fix it.

That's a discussion for another thread. Don't derail us here.
Ed: yadda yadda
Carnac: yadda insult yadda
Ed: yadda Hey-yo yadda the envelope please
Carnac: What do you tell Jack when he asks what yarn is made out of?
See? I can stay on-topic for game threads.

I figured there was no way they would play, but at one they just announced delayed. Why cancel when money is pouring in!
The minor leaguers played each other and started at 9:30 and played 7 innings.
