Indeed, Guillen in LF

It’s back to where he started when he was drafted by the Astros as an outfielder. He’ll have a very cloudy sky against which to judge fly balls.

As for how left field will work out in Oakland, that’s kind of unclear. Jim Leyland said he’ll start Marcus Thames there at least once and probably twice, but he also said he wants to give Clete Thomas a game there and is thinking about giving Guillen a game. Maybe Thames or Magglio Ordonez will get a day at DH to balance it out.
