Where in Texas' lineup will Soriano bat?

I've seen reports that Buck is going to use him all over the field, but I havent heard anything concerning where he'll be batting. If he bats third, I feel that his value surpasses that of Vlad. What do you fellow cafers' think?

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Latest I heard was that he would be playing mostly CF with some time at 2B. Guess we'll see in a few weeks!

Leadoff. I just really don't see it going any other way.

If I were Showalter, he'd bat 3rd. You can't bat him leadoff because the young Texas hitters need the protection in the lineup.

I hope its 3rd. That would be a wet dream. His rbi total would go up by 30.

I don't see his value passing Vlad. Soriano K's too much.
