reed/winn in the two slot?

Postby Cooner » Sat Mar 26, 2005 11:28 pm

As of a couple weeks ago, all reports had Reed in the two slot (read, Suzuki on base 41% of the time in front of you, and Beltre and Sexson behind you to knock you in) with Winn banished to the wasteland of 7thish (read, Raul Ibanez on base 35% of the time in front of you, and Miguel Olivo and Jose Lopez to knock you in :-? )

Now I see some reports with Reed at 7th, Winn at 2nd.

Anyone know what's going on?

Seems like the plan is Reed at 2 for now :-D

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Yup, Reed's most likely going to be batting 2nd. ;-D

Everything Ive read has Reed hitting #2. If you have info stating the contrary how recent is it and how reliable is it? If its legit it obviously has large fantasy implications.

yeah, i've got winn in one league, and if you've got any links saying he'll be back in the 2-hole, i'd love to see them. :-D

I drafted him before I found out about this news. If he bats 7th, is he a droppable player, or do you just have to hope he can still put up numbers like last year? :-?

it was a CBS sportsline link on their Seattle page- maybe it's just really old and they don't update enough- I really don't know how reliable they are, but it made me nervous.

http://cbs.sportsline.com/mlb/teams/report/SEA/8315791

http://www.barcelonadragons.com/mlb/spring/lineups/nl

(they may be the same info, as the second page appears to have all CBS stuff)



edit: you'll note that both sites have updated their lineups since I opened the thread, putting Pokey Reese in at SS and the 9-hole instead of Jose Lopez

All I hear is Reed in the 2 hole. Sort of makes me sad and happy, because I have Winn in my auction as a 5th OF, and Reed as a backup center fielder in the 18 team H2H World Series bracket Im in. If he hits in the 2 hole, he was a nice investment in the 14th round.

It says March 22nd at the top, but I wonder if that is when it was really written. Look what they say about Reed...

--CF Jeremy Reed has been all but anointed the new center fielder, and he would need to have a bad spring for the Mariners to go with somebody else in that position. Reed is a high-average hitter who tends to get a lot of doubles in the gaps.


I would say he has had a good spring. Sounds like this was written at the beginning of spring training.

i put this in as an edit, but a couple people posted in between, so i'll repeat it-

edit: you'll note that both sites have updated their lineups since I opened the thread, putting Pokey Reese in at SS and the 9-hole instead of Jose Lopez, who got relegated back to the minors the other day.
