News: Bob Brenly told the Arizona Republic Alex Cintron will open the season as the team's No. 5 hitter, behind Richie Sexson. "I like Alex at the No. 5 spot because he's a left-handed hitter who can break up the lineup. He's shown the ability to pick up big runs, and he's got a good eye for the strike zone," Brenly said.
I would still protect Cintron. He had a really solid season last year and hitting behind Sexson will be nice for his RBI's.
