Leadoff Options

So I'm new here. Well not really. I have been reading all the posts on here for the past few months. But this is my first post. I love rumors and lineup talk. So I would love some feedback for discussion because I am tired of talking to myself about what the Cards should do. Thanks.

After the break we will hopefully have a healthy lineup of:

Lopez

Holliday

Pujols  

Ludwick

Rasmus

Freese

Molina

Ryan

That is a good lineup (Though TLR might not ever put it on the field). I personally don't want to see shumaker out there everyday anymore, and i would rather have lopez further down in the lineup. Some viable options that i hav conjured up(no real sources).

Ludwick will not be a Cardinal forever due to free agency in the forseeable future. A trade with the royals could look like this: Ludwick for Dejesus and a bullpen arm(Farnsworth).

Making a lineup of:

Dejesus

Holliday/Rasmus

Pujols

Holliday/Rasmus

Freese

Lopez

Molina

Ryan



Or with the Nationals (Ludwick for Morgan and Capps).

 

In both situations you gain a leadoff man and an outfielder who can play all three outfield positions. And We still have shumaker off the bench. In other situations we could keep Ludwick and try to deal Schumaker or ryan for leadoff/MIF help. Just throwing names out there (not all leadoff guys, not all attainable for only skip or ryan), Chone Figgins, Jhonny Peralta, Cristian Guzman, Stephen Drew, Ryan Theriot, Mike Fonetnot, Edgar Renaria, Mark Derosa, and there are probably obvious one that i missed.

 

Let me here some feedback please.
