Manager Ozzie Guillen has settled on Tadahito Iguchi as his #2 hitter.

''Iguchi, right now, I'm comfortable with him,'' Guillen said. ''He hasn't missed a sign yet -- hit-and-run or whatever. Right now, he looks real good in the second spot. Having Uribe in the bottom gives me more speed there, but I think Iguchi handles the bat better than Juan.'' Scott Podsednik and Iguchi will give the White Sox a ton of speed at the top of the lineup. Mar. 13 - 9:13 am et

Good news for all Iguchi owners, including myself.

Given this latest news, what is your guys view as to his draft position when compared to a Roberts, Uribe & Kaz? Does this piece of news move him past any of them?

Uribe is starting at SS for Chicago, rather than working around Harris and Valentin like he did last year.

Moving down in the order may, at least theoretically, open up a bit more room to run than he'd have in the 2 hole, although w/ less AB. Although, if Guillen notes that Uribe ran 20 times and got shot down 11 times, he might reconsider the 'green light' policy a bit!!

He is losing tons of at bats, there is not reasonable way that could be interpreted as good news. Least you need any convinving, think about how many runs he will score with a .250 singles hitter and a completely unproven guy from Japan hitting behind him.
