Norton definitely does not scare you in the #4 hole, but his stats in the limited games he has been the clean up hitter are not bad.

The Magglio Ordonez of the second half has to be in the running.

Very good start to the year, but, uh since the all star break:
.242/.285/.335 for an OPS of .620 and all of 1 HR in 161 ABs. Remember this is the cleanup hitter of a 1st place team I'm talking about here.

Yeah I love when a Detroit fan says see the Ordonez signing wasn't bad, we are in first place. That team has been winning in spite of him, not because of him.

I don't really agree with the "in spite of" part. Ordonez was very, very good in the first half and a major part of the team's winning. Coincidentally enough, the team hasn't been quite as successful since Ordonez's numbers went south. If you ask me, the team's success is actually somewhat related to Ordonez's success, not in spite of it.

But still, this guy has been BAD since the all-star break, possibly the worst cleanup hitter in baseball during that time. The numbers don't tell the whole story. It could be his knee wearing down or an overall lack of conditioning, but he seems worn out. He seriously needs to step up.

Norton.


On a related Subject, If Lorretta keeps batting third, he is the worst number three hitter in baseball.
