Wright batting 8th

Not that big of a deal. He'll move up in the order pretty quickly IMO.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

great move. These young kids have a hard time batting high in the order. Just look at Miguel Cabera. He couldn't hack it in the 3 spot...

Same kind of discrimination that occurs regularly in the corporate world. I think Billy Beane said "I'll take talent over experience any day." The Mets should do the same.

As a Mets fan, I want Wright batting something like 5th or 6th. The thing is, he's young and hasn't played a full season yet. Expectations are so high for him. He seems like a level-headed guy and I don't see him as the type to buckle under the pressure. But starting him off this season should lower expectations. I would rather see him move up in the order after only a few weeks than be moved down in the order after struggling early.

This wont last long. You know Piazza and Floyd are going down, and you cant honestly expect Cameron and his .250 avg to hold back a guy who bats in the .280-.300 range. But its a stupid move, just like batting Chone 9th.

METS order should be Beltran, Reyes, Wright, Piazza. I have Blake on my Teams to play 3rd until the Mets get Wright in the proper place in the order.

You want Beltran and his 30 HRs hitting at the top? :-?

I have the Mets lineup as follows:

Reyes
Matsui
Beltran
Piazza
Floyd
Cameron
Meneoinqvousdwickz
Wright

I would bat Wright 6th personally.

so far the projected lineups I've seen have Wright batting 7th, not 8th (namely rototimes, but there's others). either way, I see him moving up the lineup once he starts producing/not getting hurt.
Can't worry about tomorrow's pain tonight.

Beltran won't hit many home runs at Shea. 1st rather than 3rd gives him 20+ more ABs over the season. The starting pitcher will average 2 AB before him each game. A pinch hitter will bat before him the rest to the game. Would you rather have Kaz have 20+ more ABs than Beltran. Beltran had a .370+ OBP 2 years ago. Reyes is a fastball hitter and will not have to swing at junk with Beltran on base. Wright is the best contact hitter on the team. Belrtan, Reyes, Wright, Piazza
