Arizona lineup: Byrnes in cleanup spot

Postby The Big Train » Wed Mar 05, 2008 8:18 am

According to ESPN:

"Arizona manager Bob Melvin told reporters that Chris Young, Orlando Hudson and Conor Jackson will be his first, second and third hitters to begin 2008, while Eric Byrnes has a very good chance of landing the cleanup spot, according to The Arizona Republic. Byrnes was most effective in '07 when he was hitting leadoff (.842 OPS compared to .762 hitting third and .741 hitting fourth), but don't worry too much about the possible lineup switch hurting his steals: Byrnes stole 31 bases out of the three-hole in '07, compared to 12 while hitting leadoff. Meanwhile, that's very good news for Young's potential stolen base numbers: He was 19-of-22 from the leadoff spot in '07." ... pnotes0304
