Suggestion...before offering an uninformed opinion on a player, get informed by checking out some numbers. Two things will immediately be accomplished. First, you'll get razzed by guys like me a whole lot less. Second, you'll become a far more proficient fantasy owner, guaranteed.
There's never been much question about Shelton's bat. Check his numbers as a pro. There was doubt about whether he could ever do much more than DH, as his defense was pretty shoddy, but he's improved in that area.
Agree with Ryn that he ought to be hitting cleanup, by the way. Leyland is apparently going with the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory, one to which I've never subscribed. Guess it's a good thing Shelton didn't get rolling while hitting in the #8 hole, where Leyland actually toyed with placing him during ST.
