Lining Up The Brewers

Let the Countdown to games being as we now stand 5 days shy of the 1st game of Spring Training against the San Francisco Giants.  I've avoided talking much about what the Brewers lineup and fielding will look like because we knew so little about what would happen to Braunie.  Well now we know and it's as good a time as any to try and construct what a potential Brewers lineup...
