That lineup card represents our stab at what might the Twins' ideal batting order, by position, when everyone is healthy and productive in 2011. As was the case in 2010, there are really four positions for three guys when Justin Morneau is healthy -- splitting LF, RF and DH between Michael Cuddyer, Jason Kubel, Jim Thome and Delmon Young. All four guys have knocked in over 100 runs in an MLB season. None of them can play center field at Target Field. So we hedged a bit and guessed that Cuddy and Kubel split ABs in right field. Much of it depends on the hot hand.

In any event, that is at least close to a best-case lineup. Your task, in the comments, is to guess at which lineup will be used the most -- by position and batting order -- by the Twins this year. We'll circle back in October, backed by your vigilance, and award a terrific prize to the commenter who ends up picking the correct combination.
