Yeah, he'll get regular at bats but ther question remains where he'll hit. If he hits in the top of the order except about 25SB 85R .280 10HR 60RBI. If he bats in the bottom of the order expect much lower #'s 20Sbs 50RBI, 8Hr, 60R .270

On the Yankees???? No, if Womack leads off, healthy, and plays everyday, off expect 25SB .300+ Avg, 100+Runs.

Womack will not lead off for the Yankees, it would actually decrease production from that spot... I think this guy named Jeter leads off pretty well... And yes, I think Burke has a chance to outproduce Womack... Womack should be on his way out, in fact I am surprised he did so last year... Burke should hit .275 ish with 10 HR and just as many steals as Womack.

I think he will get a chance for regular at bats but I think he better produce or he might be back in the minors for a month or so. It would be unusual for a rookie to not struggle for a while. He is going to be a good one, the only question is if this is the year. I would say Womack is safer pick

If you think Womack has a good chance of hitting .300 you are insane.

Watch Burke closely in spring training. He has a chance to be good but he hasn't wrapped up a roster spot yet, much less the 2b job.

Burke will probably start and probably get 450-550 AB and put up ok numbers for a rookie...Having said that, every wonk in America has read about him their little fantasy magazine and will be jonesin' to get him as a 'sleeper'. He won't be underpriced and he won't fall to the last rounds unless there are idiots in your league....
