Jays Batting Order, Wells?

Postby Dr. StrangeGlove » Mon Dec 26, 2005 1:51 pm

Im curious to how the Jays batting order will look this season. As a Wells owner Im wondering where he will bat? I see Glaus at clean-up, Hillendbrand 5th? Overbay 3rd or 6th? Where does this leave Wells?

I'm not positive but I think the lineup will be like this.

1. Adams
2. Overbay
3. Vernon
4. Glaus
5. Hillenbrand/Koskie
6. Hill
7. Johnson/Catalanatto
8. Rios
9. Zaun

Adams at leadoff, that should boost his steals.

That's only if Gibbons lets him.

This is how I think it will be (not how I would make it):

Adams
Catalanatto/Johnson
Wells
Glaus
Overbay
Koskie
Hill
Zaun
Rios


I'm assuming Hillenbrand gets dealt in the next few months. A replacement for Rios may also still be traded for.

Wouldn't it be better to trade Coskie ? I think Hillenbrand is a better player and more valuable

Hillenbrand has more trade value (with a good season last year), and would be a more attractive option to most teams as he also has a lower price tag.

I also believe Koskie's season last year was only an aberration, he never really got a chance to fit in. His defense is also far superior to Hillenbrand's.

It really wouldn't make much difference to me either way Ricciardi goes, but I'd rather give Koskie another shot on this team. Maybe Hillenbrand could get us a decent rightfielder.

In the press conference today, Ricciardi mentioned a top of the order comprised of Adams and Catalanatto, followed by a combination of Overbay, Glaus, Wells and Hillenbrand.

No, he didn't say anything about Koskie, but if you want to see it, it is archived on MLB.com.
