Now that Felipe has said Barrry won't bat 2nd, its likely going to be Winn, right?

Where will Durham bat? "I don't know," said Alou. Durham, batting mainly from the fifth spot in 2005 (78 games), hit a lusty .290 overall and was more than comfy lower in the order.

Alou said Omar Vizquel will be the No. 2 hitter this season, but the third spot is still open.

Winn was happy to hear Alou tell him he'll lead off.

"I like to find out what's in store," said Winn. "And being leadoff is fine with me. I don't mind where I hit in the lineup and it's not a big deal, but it's nice to talk with the manager and find out."

rototimes depth chart has rwinn as leadoff...durham really should hit 2nd and vizquel down in the order...durham's OBP is so much better than omar's...and bonds and alou need people to drive in

Part of it depends on whether Bonds bats 3rd or 4th. If he bats 4th you could see Winn in the 3 hole with Viz and Durham at the top. Then Alou, Feliz, Neikro & Matheny.

If Bonds bats 3rd then Winn would bat leadoff. I'm not sure he's going to be that good in the leadoff spot. Like Durham, Winn seemed to hit better with the M's when he was lower in the order.

Right now its looking like this:

Winn
Visquel (They want him at the top of the order, and #2 is a great spot for him)
Durham :-o
Bonds
Alou
Feliz
Niekro
Matheny
Pitcher

Durham batting third is the big question mark. I think you may see who ever is hot out of niekro/feliz/durham in that spot, as Felipe likes to play streaks like that. You might also see Alou move to 3 and Feliz/Durham in the 5/6 spots. They also might move Bonds to 3rd, Alou 4th, and then Durham/Feliz or Feliz/Durham. Another option is going Visquel/Durham at the top of the order and then Winn in the 3 spot. Honestly, I don't think that there will ever be a set lineup. Felipe likes to play the matchups, and I think that throughout the season you wil see a lot of different combinations.
