Baseball's Best Lineup - AL Central

The biggest offseason move came when the Detroit Tigers sent Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers for Ian Kinsler.  This moved Miguel Cabrera back to 1B and opened up a spot for Nick Castellanos at 3B.  The Kansas City Royals also made a big move, trading for Norichika Aoki to be their leadoff hitter.  The Twins will have a battle at the catcher position for the 1st time in what feels like forever now that Joe Mauer is playing 1B full time and Justin Morneau is in the National League.  Expect Josmil Pinto to end the season with more ABs than Kurt Suzuki.  The White Sox feature a younger lineup adding Adam Eaton, Jose Abreu and Matt Davidson.
