Adam batting leadoff?!

Postby Rance Mulliniks » Fri Jun 24, 2005 10:03 am

What do you guys think about Adams batting leadoff?

With an OBP <.300, I don't think it's a great experiment

I'd rather see Johnson or Rios up there.

It's a good experiment, but I don't like him there. I think they need to insert Rios there permantly. He's proven that he can get on base, and he's got great speed. Although I like Johnson there too.

I think they should just slide Rios in there.. ;-D

i don't like the idea. sure, maybe a move up in the order like this can inspire him, but i don't see it happening. :-/

i don't like this move at all...i was actually surprised gibbons decided to go with adams in the leadoff spot.

i think cat/johnson and rios were all doing a good job there...adams hasn't exactly been tearing the cover of the ball and his OBP is nothing great to be batting up there.

I don't have much faith in Adams as a hitter!! I definetly think they should stick with Johnson
