Sure, let's do this. I can make an actual post, and then later I can put things into a spreadsheet so that someone else can figure things out even later, right?

Your 2017 Twins Are…

Forking off the discussion to here...

Here's my barely half baked attempt at a 2017 lineup.

Listing it out...

Catcher: ???
First: Mauer.
Second: Dozier.
Third: Sano. UZR had him as a plus fielder there this year and last.
Shortstop: Polanco? UZR did not like his fielding at short.
Right: Kepler.
Center: Buxton.
Left: ???

Suzuki's option did not vest so I think that makes him a free agent. That leaves Murphy as the catcher to start the season. Grossman is the obvious one to put in left but, well, gross. Maybe Rosario instead? Scouts never liked Polanco's fielding at short and the metrics agree with them. Escobar would then be the shortstop but he needs to bring back the 2015 version.
