I kept him in my CBS League because he was a sure-thing 3-holer! :-[

Dangit.

Crawford-Zobrist-Baldelli and Wiggy. :-?

Well, Z-man is a rook and Rocco is already achin'. There's hope for DY fans.

I wouldn't worry too much. Maddon's apt to switch it by Game 3.

He hit 4 today, but he has destroyed the ball back in the 7 hole and at the 4 hole he will be fine, they need to spread out the bats

Wigginton batting clean up with that type of eligibility makes me take a longer look at him. :-°

i figured he was going to hit 2nd, not 3rd anyway. i figured rocco 1, young 2, crawford 3, etc... him hitting 7th is definitely something to worry about but im sure he'd be willing to change the lineup if delmon is raking. as for wiggington, i still cant regard him as a good hitter yet. maybe its foolish of him, but i just dont see him hitting consistently.

Zorbist will flop and Baldelli will get hurt so Young will be in the middle of that order by mid season.

Yeah I can't fathom Baldelli staying healthy for a full year. He has a chronic condition. TB should have moved him in the off season.

Zobrist isn't even in the top 3 best hitting shortstops in their system, let alone hitting in the top 3 on their big league team. He shouldn't be hitting 2.

Chronic? :-°


I would not expect the Delmon hitting 7th to last very long. He is still a top 3 bat on that team, even with his 120 ML at bats right now. I expect the Delmon experiment to last a month tops if I were to guess right now. Zobrist is not quite as bad as Snakes thinks :-b , as he probably will hit around 275 or so, but he just will not provide any pop. Zobrist will be moved down to the 8 or 9 hole before too long, to get the Drays some much more needed offense early in the lineup. Wigginton is the huge winner in this new lineup though with him hitting behind Crawford and Baldelli.
