The last lineup of the 2012 season: In pictures

For an eternity leading up to this spring, 2012 was supposed to be the year The Process came to a head. “Mission 2012″ was officially a Thing in the newspaper.

But, here we are, for lots of reasons. Injuries happened. I’m tempted – and as the offseason wears on I might give in to this temptation – to play ‘revisionist historian’ and guess at what may have happened if Danny Duffy and Felipe Paulino had been around, instead of…well, the rotation that we had.

In the meantime, the final game of the season is being played by 9 guys who, I’m guessing, were not part of the lineup GMDM envisioned when imagining Mission: 2012. Let’s immortalize this, because pictures are pretty and this offseason could be ugly.

(More about that to come, but in short: It makes me nervous that Glass is all, “Hell yeah! Spending money on pitching! Make it rain!” Who, exactly, is going to b the recipient of this windfall? In this winter’s pitching market, I’m sharpening my pitchfork just in case.)

LEADING OFF: JARROD DYSON.
PART FOUR: The slide
PINCH-HIT FOR BY: JASON BOURGEOIS

BATTING SECOND: ALCIDES ESCOBAR
Alcides Escobar

BATTING THIRD: ALEX GORDON
Alex Gordon had to LEAP up over him!

BATTING FOURTH: BILLY BUTLER
Sheepish Billy.

“BATTING” FIFTH: JEFF FRANCOEUR
Frenchy taking a hack.

BATTING SIXTH: BRAYAN PENA
The throw wasn't quite there, but Pena couldn't hold on to it anyway. Another Chicago run. :(

BATTING SEVENTH: ADAM MOORE

BATTING EIGHTH: JOHNNY GIAVOTELLA

BATTING NINTH: IRVING FALU
Irving Falu

So that lineup happened. This entire post maaaay have been a contrived scheme to use that old picture of Billy Butler looking sheepish and wearing a too-short tie. Good times.
