I'm starting him . . . I'm last in steals and need him. Any word on whether he's batting ninth not first? That would suck.

Mike said that he'd most likely keep Gary Matthews Jr. batting leadoff and have Figgins bat 9th. Figgins just told him whatever was best for the team. So yeah, I see Figgins batting 9th unless Matthews goes into a ridiculous slump.

I think Figgins will work his way to the top of the line-up before too long.

I disagree. Figgins will start hitting 9th, but I think they will put whoever is hitting better leadoff. I mean if Figgins starts hitting like 310 or even 300 I don't think they would keep him 9th. If he hits 290 and above he will hit 1st.

Is Figgins starting today? I heard that he might, but I'm not sure if that means it's going to be a game-time decision.

Everything I've read on it says he'll be activated, but nothing is said about whether he'll start or not. I would assume he's gonna start, otherwise why would they activate him. I started him this week!! ;-D

He was 5-for-14 in his minor league rehab assignment before last night's game (I didn't get stats for that one). The hits were 4 singles and a double. He was 0/1 in SB's. I'm not worried about the last stat. He may feel confident enough in his ability to steal that he didn't test it more than once, maybe he was thinking in terms of not getting hurt again before getting back with the Angels.

he went 2-for-3 last night so it seems like he's sufficiently warmed up to be in the line-up tonight.

Oops... ignore where I said "I didn;'t get stats for that one" .... bad editing on my part - all of those stats are current.
