This is just speculation, but it might have something to do with Taveras batting 2nd instead of leading off.

Biggio has been leading off so far this year.

freel vs pods

Postby trevornm16 » Sun Apr 09, 2006 6:16 pm

freel will have a significant amount more of sbs than pods...pods is on the decline and full of injuries....he could barely play any games this spring because of numerous nagging injuries....and nagging injuries kill speed....on the subject of willy tho who i have on my team...its way to early to get worried...physically i dont think there is anything wrong with him...i saw him at the end of the WBC and he had as much jump as ever....write him down for 35 - 45 steals but be prepared for a low OPS and a 275 average

One week is just one week... If his avg. and obp. look good in a month or so, I suspect he bats #1 and Biggio moves to 2nd.... Biggio (at this point in his career) is more a #2 guy than a #1 guy.

I half suspect the manager has the current lineup just to provide motivation to Taveras to step it up. Biggio leading off makes no sense.
