Well, in the article I posted, he said he believes that Weeks will have more RBI opportunities hitting 6th than 2nd, and that his power could be more valuable that way. I tend to agree. Hardy is more the prototypical #2, and I think you have to have Jenks/Lee at 3/4 at this point. So to me, it comes down to 5 or 6. Hitting Prince than Rickie gives you and overall R-R-L-R-L-R-L-R alternation, which is kind of nice.


Plus Weeks hit .239 last year. :-P Hardy wasn't much better... just like 10 points, but I just thought I'd point that out.

Should we assume that if Prince gets hot and Jenkins goes back to his .260 BA days that they would flip-flop in the lineup?

jj hit like .315 post ASB, he had trouble hitting when he first got started, but when he adjusted he hit very well

I was surprised that Weeks was at 6 too. I hope it pays off in the RBI category... :-o

This lineup really has me hoping Sheets can stay healthy all year. I'm not a big Brewers fan, but they're a great young LIKEABLE team that can really throw a monkey wrench into the NL Central. I'd love to see them play spoiler.

I would bat Hall/Koskie 2nd but that is just me. Hardy doesn't seem to have the on base skills or the speed to be hitting there.

Hardy posted a .363 OBP after the all star break last year and he doesn't K much, he's an ok bunter and has good bat control and plate discipline. He makes a very good #2 hitter though I wish he did have a bit more speed.

FWIW Hardy's career OBP in the minors is .336. I can understand why they are hitting him there I just don't think he is the best choice.

Question for anyone "in the know" about the Brewers. I have read a few times that there is some potential for Corey Hart to platoon with Prince at first....is there any truth to this?

Hart is the backup, I wouldn't call it a pure platoon though. I imagine Fielder will sit more than a normal full time player just because almost all rookies do sit a little extra, but Prince hits lefties decently so I don't think it will turn into a full blown platoon.

Scooter1027 wrote:Now that the team is fine tuning for the season, the lineup has stayed consistent for some time now, and it seems to be set. I know there was some debate on this before, so I thought I'd post what it's been:

1. CF Brady Clark
2. SS JJ Hardy
3. RF Geoff Jenkins
4. LF Carlos Lee
5. 1B Prince Fielder
6. 2B Rickie Weeks
7. 3B Corey Koskie/Bill Hall
8. C Damian Miller

Hall has started against lefties in Koskie's spot in the lineup. Actually tonight, Hall is starting in CF and leading off. Basically I think he'll hit in whatever spot he's replacing (2nd for JJ, 6th for Rickie, etc)


nice post. thanks for the info ;-D
