Crawford?

Postby ha_jai » Sun May 27, 2007 8:08 am

Greetings,

I was curious to see if anyone knew why Crawford moved from leadoff last season to batting 3rd this season. While his RBI should increase, his SB should suffer this season. Why was he move down in the order? and what do you think his SB totals will be at the end of the season?

I'd say that he is hitting third on the team because that is where you hit your best hitter. :-)

In regards to his stolen bases, I don't think it will affect his totals. He'll still get 50-60.

:-? Crawford only hit leadoff last year for the month of April. He was moved to the 2 hole in May and later in the year(around August) once Baldelli got healthy, he was moved to the 3 hole.

Yeah, I don't think it will affect his SBs too much. He hit third for 166 AB with 22 SB last year, compared to 31 SB at 341 AB in the two hole.

crawford will be fine.
he isnt leadoff because there are better lead off people and he is a better hitter to be in the 2-3 hole.

This is pretty much echoing what others are saying, he was fine last year and should be ok regarding sb's this year in the 3 hole.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.
