All this tinkering with line up is dumb. These players "will" start and play period.

I'm not giving a batting order here but these guys "are gonna start", not share time, not alternate next season. Providing there are no problems in fall with progression these are the guys that are going to play.

Tre 3
Crews 8
Dugas 7
Jobert dh
Thompson 6/4
Pearson 9

Transfers based on this season's stats

Tanks 5

Which leaves

6/4 middle infielder(Pineta/Romero)
2 position


Pinaeta, yes he was decently okay in the middle at baylor but no one knows if Romero will show up or not and be lights out yet.

Who will actually fill the 2 position? We all know Alex can be a solid defensive guy. Is CJJ working on a solid catcher from the portal ? I'd like to think so. We need a SEC bat in the 2 position not just solid defense behind the plate but solid hitting also.


The above will start and leave a middle infielder open and as time passes we will know if milazzo will be the catcher or not. Say what you want but facts are facts. Stevenson will get at bats and p.t. during the season. Those 1st 7 guys are gonna play those positions so don't act like they wont. To make a statement that TM won't play the 3 position is just stupid.

Milazzo will start at catcher. He is a game changer at that position. You need him to bat around the Mendoza line. Look at the guys like Maldonado in Houston. Dude is money. LSU if fully staffed in the direction they are going will not need a lot from his bat.

Crews
Morgan
White are written in stone

I would say no one else is. All depends on who shows up to campus

Only Tre, Crews, and Pearson are safe. Dugas is probably pretty close, if he stays. Jobert and Thompson aren't safe.

Counting everyone on the roster now:

Tre
Crews
Pearson
White
Pineda

Now you try to find 4 other guys. If you're short, then the Dugas, Jobert, Thompson, freshmen come into play. If you're 1 short, Dugas is in. If you're 2 or more short, everybody is competing.

I can agree with your take but if lsu is expected to raise the bar as cjj is already doing with tanks, some of the pitchers coming in etc., imo A.M. has to be better hitting wise. I mean batting 180 just doesn't cut it. To be elite, why settle for the Mendoza line when you can clearly bring in better. Is it safe to say lsu is tired of having someone bat who we have no faith in? Just saying.

Catcher is the one position you can deal with a guy not being able to hit. A great defensive catcher is such a weapon to have.

im not saying he wont start. Romero has that Bregman aura potential. Don't know what truly will happen is all I'm saying.

how can anyone even question if he plays or not when he had a season like he did last year? He can do this again next season barring injuries etc. He starts and plays if he stays in line and progresses in the fall.

He hit a lot of home runs against below par pitching staffs, and only hit for about .a 255 batting average.

What were his SEC + postseason numbers? Likely around .220 with 5 home runs.

If you bat less than .200, you have no business starting in the SEC, regardless of how good you are on defense.

agreed. Pearson came in a sat somebody on the bench. Pins will most likely start but it isn't impossible he could get benched by someone better. Js...but yeah your prolly right bro.
