    I think they had rosters at the first few practices last year, may have to just ask about the schedule when we get there, helps to know a few days in advance

    Updated the first page. Here's my views on Line Up and possible Batting Order.

    Line-Up
    1st - Calilao/Armstrong
    2nd - Acton/Nunez
    SS - Rivera/Blasucci/Nunez
    3rd - Smith/Blasucci
    C - Hickey/Greenfield
    LF - Langworthy/Talbot
    CF - Fabian/Brinling
    RF - Young/Edge

    Pitchers - Hopeful Starters - Mace, Leftwich, (Recruits Barco-L, Sproat)
    .....Relievers - Pogue, Scott, Butler-L, Luethje, Armstrong, Crisp, K McMullen, Specht, Alintoff (Recruits Nesbitt, Martin, Cabarcas-L, Mink, Talbot, Van Der Weide-L)
    .....Unknowns - Milchin, H McMullen

    Batting Order
    1 - Young (Speed, can bunt, good 1st half)
    2 - Fabian (led Fr in HR, batting .293 in summer league)
    3 - Langworthy (Team returning leader conf BA)
    4 - (DH) K McMullen (hands down the best hitter right now)
    5 - Hickey (sweet lefty swing for a freshman)
    6 - Calilao (Team leader in RBIs, great 1st half)
    7 - Rivera (top newcomer in the infield)
    8 - Acton (best producing Fr in conf stats)
    9 - Smith (will he really bat 9th, I don't think so)

    I have to think the bottom 4 have almost as good a chance to move up in the order as anyone. Hopefully this gives us more options and bigger threats on offense later in the year.

    Has Nunez or acton played any third base in practices? I would imagine Acton is a viable option for 3rd too?

    I would start Lang lower in the order. He seems to start slow so hide him down in the order a bit and let him heat up. Sully can always adjust if Lang is hot.

    Brock Edge, my understanding was he was a pretty good hitter. Does he find a place in the lineup? Or looking like he is the odd man out in the OF/DH?

    Nunez has mainly been backing up 2nd and some SS. I don't recall if he has been at 3rd any. Acton is a lock at second imo.

    I can't disagree with you on Lang from past experience but he has the most career at bats verses any one else on the team. Sully seems set with him in the top 3. Let's see where he is at the first week of March and then review.
    Edge is a good hitter but Young is better at hitting and fielding RF.

    I think Acton took some innings at 3rd very early on, maybe 1 0r 2 practices but has been consistently at 2nd since and doing well
