Your Dream Twins Lineup
Plouffe's surge and Dozier's downfall have me reconsidering what I would most like to see the Twins put out on a daily basis. Here it goes.
1 Revere CF
2 Span LF
3 Mauer C
4 Josh Willingham RF
5 Trevor Plouffe 3B
6 Justin Morneau 1B
7 Ryan Doumit/Chris Parmelee DH Platoon
8 Alexi Casilla 2B
9 Jamey Carroll SS
(P Scott Diamond)

I like your lineup. I'm hoping for a Dozier resurgence.

Why Revere #1??? as long as Span is still on this team it won't happen plus as well as Ben is hitting he still has only 4 walks..that's dreadful for a #2 hitter with zero power let alone a leadoff guy. Plus you have to play Dozier and let him take his lumps, The Twins are not in contention and he's here to play, why play a 38 yr old everyday.

I believe in Dozier & wont give up on him.
I would like to see him hit 9th as he has a little bit of extra base power (esp last yr) & would like the nonpower guys(Carroll/Casilla/Buter/Span/Revere) broken up with someone who can pop a double.

Yeah last night's loss was tough for me to handle. Twice as many hits as the Brewers yet no cigar.

Span is leadoff as long as he's a Twin
Mauer is a two hitter. That's my opinion and Gardy may disagree with me.
Willingham is the best Choice for Three and he stops the lefty run.
Morneau is the 4. Hope he gets hot and stays healthy.
Plouffe is looking like a 4 right now. Let's just calm down and say 5 for now.
Doumit is the obvious 6
Ill go with Dozier at 7 because Doumit can clog up the base paths. Dozier can move him over so the Speed guys get a little space.
Casilla at the 8 over Carroll cuz of his speed and he is much younger.
Revere at the 9... Ben could certainly hit higher up but the 9 position rolls over to the top of the order. I think the 9 spot is important for that reason. I also like my Speed guys grouped together. Lights out Pitching can shut power guys down on occasion. During those occasions... You can put your speed guys together and scratch some things out. Speed is hard to stop... Even if you are dealing.

I think we need to face facts and realize the lineup needs to be mixed up more. For the 8 people not named Trevor Plouffe last night, just one run.

You did say dream
Keeping somewhat in spirit of the question although they are not the best all time I picked 6 on the current roster
1b Morneau (I also dreamed he did not get kneed between the eyes)
3b Plouffe (I dreamed the pitchers don't figure hin out
SS Dozier (I wasn't going to pick someone who piched
2b Rod Carew when Sir Rodney was young enough to play 2b
RF Tony Oliva before the knees went
DH Harmon Killebrew
Relief, Readon over Aggie
Starter Morrris was here only 1 year so I would have to go with Viola.
