Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Assuming both are in the lineup for tonight, who would you start?
The White Sox are facing Seattle, with Vargas on the mound (Mariners have won 8 straight)
The Twins are facing Texas, with Harrison on the mound.
I suposse I could start both of them, but I would have to take somebody else out of the lineup:
1B: Teixeira (Clevaland/Kluber)
2B: Zobrist (Oakland/Parker)
3B: A. Ramirez (Pittsburgh/Rodriguez)
SS: Castro (already played)
OF: Braun (Pittsburgh/Rodriguez)
OF: Granderson (Cleveland/Kluber)
OF: Holliday (Cincinnati/Latos)
Util: Bourn (San Francisco/Vogelsong)
Util: Frazier (St. Louis/Lynn)
BN: Freese (Cincinnati/Latos)
BN: Espinosa (Philadelphia/Kendrick)
Not sold on starting Bourn against the surging Giants and Vogelsong, so I could put one of them in there, although Freese would look good as my Util. player as well.

Up to this point, it really wouldn't have made a difference who I picked.
Mauer is -1 in points (1 K) and Pierzynski is +1 (0/3 with an RBI)
BTW, I picked Mauer. Pierzynski is still playing, but so far I would be up 2 poins if I would have picked him instead, haha.
Thanks and I only have to pick one or the other to start at C. I could start Mauer at 1B, but that would mean Teixeira would be on the bench. I coud also start one of them at Util, but I would then have to put one of Frazier or Bourn on the Bench.
Another option would be to put Ramirez on the bench, with Frazier in at 3B and one of my catchers in the Util spot.
Don't think I would start either of them over Braun, Holliday or Granderson though.
