Indians 2013 Lineup [// lines added]:
                                             2013 Bill James Projection       Career
1) SS Asdrubal Cabrera         .277 / .341 / .430                    .279 / .342 / .416
2) 2B Jason Kipnis                 .274 / .351 / .429                    .260 / .335 / .403
3) CF Drew Stubbs                .246 / .319 / .386                    .241 / .312 / .386
4) C   Carlos Santana            .261 / .383 / .476                    .247 / .363 / .443
5) RF  Nick Swisher                .256 / .362 / .458                    .256 / .361 / .467
6) LF  Michael Brantley          .279 / .344 / .379                     .274 / .329 / .376
7) 1B  Mark Reynolds             .231 / .336 /.463                     .235 / .332 / .475
8 ) 3B  Lonnie Chisenhall
9) DH  Matt LaPorta

I go:
Swisher
Cabrera
Kipnis
Santana
Reynolds
Brantley
LaPorta
Chisenhall
Stubbs

Your two best hitters are Swisher and Santana.  Kipnis and Asdrubal are close.  I like Brantley, and coudl flip flop him with Reynolds.
