Sky Sox

Here's the lineup Jim Tracy trotted out against the Arizona Diamondbacks this afternoon:

LF, Eric Young: marginal major leaguer
CF, Tyler Colvin: marginal major leaguer
SS, Troy Tulowitzki: legitimate major league starter
1B, Jason Giambi: former great, now strictly a bench player
RF, Michael Cuddyer: legitimate major league starter
C, Wilin Rosario: rookie in his 20th major league game
3B, Chris Nelson: marginal major leaguer
2B, Jonathan Herrera: marginal major leaguer
P, Drew Pomeranz: rookie in his fifth major league game

So not counting the rookies, that's two legitimate major league starters. Poor Tulo.
