i just read in a sporting news article that jeremy reed will be batting seventh in seattle's lineup with winn in the 2 spot. does anyone know if this is true? and if it is, how much does it lower his fantasy value as a sleeper pick? would he still be worth picking up in a 12 team league to fill in for an injured guy, such as bonds, or just to have on the bench?

I'm not surprised to see the youngster hitting near the bottom of the lineup. He could be a nice guy to have on your bench in a 12-team league (sleeper steals). Just don't put too much stock into him.

That is interesting ...
I just read somewhere today that they are leaning towards batting him in the two hole.

I'll see if I can't find the article.

Seatle PI ..

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/baseball/216994_mbok22.html


HE'S NO. 2? For the 14th time this spring, Jeremy Reed batted second for the Mariners last night.

Hargrove is divided between having the center fielder hit there, between Ichiro and Adrian Beltre, or having left fielder Randy Winn do it. Winn, who has a track record hitting behind Ichiro, has batted second only three times in Cactus League play.

"I'm doing everything I can to be there," Reed said after last night's win. "These guys, Ichiro, Beltre and (Richie) Sexson can only make me better. I like it there."

The manager has said from the outset he was leaning toward Winn. But Reed, who tripled and hit a sacrifice fly in four plate trips, is averaging .292 with two doubles, two triples and a home run. He clearly is getting a chance to bat near the top of the lineup.

Winn's other home in the lineup for Seattle has been seventh, and he's been productive with men on base in Seattle, getting 75 RBIs in 2003 and a career-best 81 last season.

"I may be leaning (toward Reed) more than I did at the beginning," Hargrove said. "But I haven't made up my mind yet."

Hargrove did say that if the left-handed Reed batted second, it would be only against right-handed pitching. Winn would probably move up there against lefties. If Winn, who is a switch-hitter, gets the job, he could keep it regardless of the pitcher.

This isn't anything official by any means but during last nights spring training game Reed batted in the #2 spot.

He hit the ball pretty well too.
