Mike Scioscia has signed his own declaration of independence by starting a lineup only his twisted imagination could like. Ignore the hyperbole that would cast Hank Conger as a latter day Jeff The Mathis to Chris Iannetta's Mike The Martyr Napoli. This is not a CERA morality tale, this is playing the hot hitting Hank, but there is still that Aybar/Shuck tandem you get when you don't have the Franchise leading off.

OKAY OKAY... Here you go...

  1. J.B. Shuck LF
  2. Mike Trout CF
  3. Albert Pujols DH
  4. Josh Hamilton RF
  5. Howie Kendrick 2B
  6. Mark Trumbo 1B
  7. Alberto Callaspo 3B
  8. Hank Conger C
  9. Erick Aybar SS

and Joe Blanton is on the mound!
