Huff has had the 4th spot in the lineup cemented down for years now. So they may not move him out of that spot.
Maybe that's why they stunk!
It's true that TB didn't have as much talent like they do now. Huff is prone to cold, cold streaks. I understand that if they leave him 4th vs RHP, he could get better pitches to hit with young Gomes behind him but I hate that as Gomes owner. Gomes will lose AB bc Huff will make outs until he starts hitting.
I would think that Gomes would definitely hit cleanup vs LHP and possibly as low as 5th vs RHP.
Hopefully Gomes can become just as solid as DWright hitting 5th who gets awesome protection with Beltran and Delgado batting in front of him. DWright is doing amazing for my team.
