Upton's position in lineup...

Postby gostanford07 » Fri Aug 04, 2006 1:35 pm

I think his first game up he batted one or two or somewhere relatively high. Since then however, he's moved down to 8 or 9. Any chance he moves back up soon? What are the Drays plans for him this year?

You gotta crawl before you can walk.


Give it time.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

Who cares? He's in the lineup period. I've had him rotting on my bench all season. Much better than him being inactive. Look at what Stephen Drew has done in the 8th hole so far. I'll take that from Upton gladly.

I know, believe me I'm glad he's up, I just wanted a little more info. I already have Rollins and Guillen and I'm trying to move Rollins so I can go with a Guillen/Upton combo. I was just wondering where he was going to hit in the lineup so I could get a feel for how many runs/sb he will collect.

Next year, maybe even by the end of this year, he will be batting in the 1 or 2 hole. He has tremendous speed, and he can get on base a good amount. Just think of Jose Reyes, with a little bit more power maybe. Give this kid some time, he's gonna be special, you can just see it.
