Why the hell do the Astro's have Lance Berkman batting 6th in the lineup after Hidalgo and Ensberg? Yea I know Jimy Williams is trying to shake things around to create a spark but I don't think he needs to bump his best hitter (atleast with Kent out) down to 6 (I believe he bats 5th normally). I may be overreacting but it's frustrating to see this after finally Berks is heating up. Thoughts?

Berkman has been hurting hitting from the right side, and is actually a pretty pathetic hitter from the right side. So, I think he was batting that low sicne a lefty was pitching.

I sure thought I got a steal when I traded Edmonds for Berkman after week 3. Not looking so good anymore.

FYI, Hidalgo has been outplaying Berkman all season. So, unless Berkman gets going, I wouldn't be surprised to see Hidalgo hitting ahead of him regularly. Hidalgo is emerging again as a top option in the OF. And people who discount what Hidalgo is doing, are missing the boat. It's time to accept it. It's almost July and the guy is still hitting. Now he'll get more RBIs hitting cleanup. ;-D
