;-D


You got a source for him leading off? Everything I've seen on line-ups has him batting 8th or 9th. Since I also see a huge drop in BA for him, I don't rank him very high.

Alex Sanchez's departure might put Brandon Inge in the leadoff spot for the Tigers.
Craig Monroe shouldn't be an option. Omar Infante might be and Nook Logan would be a candidate if he somehow beats out Monroe for a job, but right now, we're guessing the Tigers will go with a lineup of: 3B Inge, SS Carlos Guillen, C Ivan Rodriguez, RF Magglio Ordonez, DH Dmitri Young, LF Rondell White, 1B Carlos Pena, CF Monroe and 2B Infante. If Inge can duplicate last year's .340 OBP, he wouldn't be such a bad option at the top. Of course, we don't see that happening.


They've got him leading off in Spring games now too.

I just picked him up for my sub player. I don't know if he'll stick all year at leadoff, but I think he'll get a shot.

I'd have to say Huff and Figgins are far and away the 2 best players on that list.

Thanks! That's the first I've seen that. Rototimes and CBS seem to have missed that one.

Would you rather have Lo Duca C/OF or Inge C/3B/OF as your C?

Didn't USA today rate LoDuca as the 1st or 2nd best catcher in the NL?
