This isnt in a particular batting order, obviously: Garza, Barney, Hairston, Castillo, Rizzo, Castro, Stewart (MAYBE!!!), DeJesus, and Sori (MAYBE!!!).

Im pretty sure brett does a contest for this exact question. But here goes nothing.

My most likely lineup:
Dejesus - CF
Castro - SS
Rizzo - 1B
Soriano - LF
Stewart - 3B
Harriston - RF
Castillo- C
Barney- 2B
Garza - P

My most hopeful lineup

Bourn- CF
Castro- SS
Rizzo- 1B
Soriano- LF
Olt- 3B
Haarriston- RF
Castillo- C
Barney- 2B
Samardizja- P (Im assuming we may have had to trade garza in some fashion to get olt, though im not necessarily sure thats what i want.

Olt would be a great pickup...Not much into Bourn...I feel as if it would just be another Soriano down the road.

Not sure who is going to start in the outfield between Hairston and Schierholtz, but assuming it's going to be a righty on opening day, I'm going to go with Schierholtz.

Here is my guess

CF David Dejesus
RF Nate Schierholtz
SS Starlin Castro
1B Anthony Rizzo
LF Alfonso Soriano
3B Ian Stewart
2B Darwin Barney
C Wellington Castillo
P Matt Garza
