Yankee fans or whoever can help. Where does Womack bat?

Postby Bukoski77 » Fri Mar 04, 2005 7:11 am

A couple weeks ago in a thread evaluating a couple 2B ( http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... 55&start=0 ), I stated that T. Womack would bat at the bottom of the order and based my evaluation of the players discussed slightly in part on account of that. Somebody else on that thread corrected me and stated he would bat leadoff.

Now a couple of days ago, Wednesday March 2nd, on a cafe article ( http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/tips.php ), it was stated that he would bat at the botom of the order - 9th.

Is it still uncetain as of now? Or does anyone know for sure where T. Womack will bat?

No way to know for sure. Torre would probably like to move Jeter to the 2-hole, but Womack is such a hack that he might not be able to tolerate that for too long. I supect you will see some experimenting in Spring Training, but if I had to bet, 9th is where Womack will see the majority of his ABs.

I wrote this in another thread, but from what I heard on the TV broadcast of yesterday's NY/PIT game, A. Rod wants to bat 2nd because he didn't like the pitches he was seeing batting 3rd. That will mean Jeter will bat 1st and Womack would end up 9th. That's how they batted yesterday if I'm not mistaken (I wasn't up for the beginning of the game so I'm not entirely sure).

That could mean a decent decrease in AB's for Womack. :-o

In a lineup as good as the Yankees', I doubt Womack would bat anywhere other than 8th or 9th. He'd be hurting them anywhere else.

As a pinch hitter. His freak career season as a 34 year-old won't carry over into 2005, and the Yankees will trade for another second baseman midway through the season.

No one knows for sure but if Torre couldn't put up with Lofton in the leadoff spot last year I don't see how he will put up with Womack batting leadoff.

I also heard that Womack wants to leadoff, but Torre is going with Jeter at the 1 spot. Therefore, poor Womack bats in the cool nine hole.

As a Yankee fan, I think Womack will hit 9th. I agree with Rkiivs with what the order should be, with Giambi possibly being interchangable with Bernie and Tino.
