I made this point in another post, but I think Rowand's value increases with his move to the 6-hole in the lineup. Yes, his runs scored are going to decline, but as noted above, his RBI's will almost certainly improve.
I also think that he will have more SB opportunities hitting 6th. When he was hitting #2, the SB opps are limited because you really don't want him stealing 2nd with Abreu up (because of the hole in the infield). I think in the 6-hole there's no reason for him not to attempt more steals.
