Lineup Card: 6-17-11 Rockies vs Tigers

If you're looking for Rockies game lineups and you don't feel like searching all over Twitter or waiting for to post them, check back to Heaven & Helton about 60-90 minutes before first pitch. They should be here waiting for you.


Colorado Rockies (33-35)
  1. CF Carlos Gonzalez
  2. 2B Chris Nelson
  3. 1B Todd Helton
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. RF Seth Smith
  6. 3B Ty Wigginton
  7. LF Charlie Blackmon
  8. C   Chris Iannetta
  9. P   Jason Hammel
Jason Hammel won't know what to do actually having the everyday lineup behind him. A true rarity.

Detroit Tigers (38-31)
  1. CF Austin Jackson
  2. LF Brennan Boesch
  3. 1B Miguel Cabrera
  4. C   Victor Martinez
  5. RF Magglio Ordonez
  6. 3B Alex Avila
  7. SS Jhonny Peralta
  8. 2B Ryan Raburn
  9. P   Rick Porcello
Damn, that's a pretty solid lineup. And creatively filled out by Jim Leyland moving Alex Avila to third base from his usual catching position to get Victor Martinez in there. So I'm thinking, let's see how of a defense for offense trade they're doing here. Let's test out Avila with a couple bunt attempts and see if Martinez can be run on a bit. 

By the way, did Leyland ever do anything creative in his one year at Colorado before riding off into the sunset smoking a pack of cigarettes?
