I find the lineups interesting for a variety of reasons.  Of course Ensberg in the two hole is something we've seen before, and I will continue to like it, until Scott (or Lane) show us that they are unable to hold down # 5.

Ever see a game where one team had the DH, and the other team didn't?

Josh Anderson in left for RRX is also interesting, simply because he's a better centerfielder than Pence.  If we continue to see Pence in center when the Express start their regular season, it will convince me that Burke is on a rather short leash.

And Conrad, not Pence, in the four hole for Round Rock.  Think about that for a little bit.

Didn't know that the organization had re-acquired Todd Self.  Always liked his plate discipline, if not his meager power.  Good luck, Todd.

Oh, and nearly forgot:  happy birthday, Eric Bruntlett.
