Batting Order/Starter Mysteries

Postby GotowarMissAgnes » Sun Mar 20, 2005 5:54 pm

Drafting Tuesday, so if anyone has latest updates on a few things where rototimes, insidepitch, sportsline, etc. have conflicting information...

Aaron Boone and Rafael Belliard...who's batting 2nd or 7th

Jason Giambi...batting 6th or 8th?

Jeremy Reed...batting 2nd or 7th?

Alex Rios...batting 1st or 7th?

Infante and Inge...who's leading off, who's batting 9th?

Khalil Greene...batting 6th or 8th?

Todd Walker..starting? batting 2nd or 6th?

Who's got the AZ catcher job?

Any updates on the Detroit or KC OF?

Mauer...batting 6th or 2nd?


Thanks for any help!

The Indians have yet to decide whether Blake, Aaron Boone or Ronnie Belliard will bat second ahead of Travis Hafner and Victor Martinez. Belliard, who is expected to hit first against left-handers, seemed like the top choice going in, but he's have a poor spring.

Jason Giambi...batting 6th or 8th?
6th most likely, maybe even 4th.

Jeremy Reed...batting 2nd or 7th?
2nd.

Alex Rios...batting 1st or 7th?
I'm thinking 7th .... Reed Johnson will probably lead off for now.

Infante and Inge...who's leading off, who's batting 9th?

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.


Khalil Greene...batting 6th or 8th?
He's dropped to seventh now behind Ramon Hernandez.

Todd Walker..starting? batting 2nd or 6th?
Starting yes, and batting 2nd.

Who's got the AZ catcher job?
The race for the starting catching job in Arizona between Koyie Hill and Chris Snyder should go ''down to the wire.'' I personally, think Synder will end up getting the job.

Any updates on the Detroit or KC OF?
White, Monroe, and Maggs will be the Detroit OF. I think the Royals OF will be Stairs, DeJesus, and TLong.

Mauer...batting 6th or 2nd?
2nd I believe.


Thanks for any help!

Giambi will hit 4th

2nd.

correct

Alex Rios...batting 1st or 7th?
I'm thinking 7th .... Reed Johnson will probably lead off for now.

Does Johnson even have the starting job? I was thinking Frank Catalanotto would be in LF and would also lead-off. Rios will bat 7th anyway.

Infante and Inge...who's leading off, who's batting 9th?

correct

no interest and no idea to be honest

Any updates on the Detroit or KC OF?
White, Monroe, and Maggs will be the Detroit OF. I think the Royals OF will be Stairs, DeJesus, and TLong.

correct on both counts



Mauer...batting 6th or 2nd?
2nd I believe.

correct

Yeah that's why Alex Sanchez is still leading off for the Tigers.

What a joke.
