The guy is one of their best 3 hitters, but he always has him hitting down in the order. That f**king bum Sheffield, who shocker, is on the DL again, was hitting 3rd with his .240 average. He goes down so I'm thinking Guillen goes back to 3 hole. Nope, Polanco goes to 3rd, and Matt fricking Joyce and his .220 average hits 2nd! What am I missing?

I think it should be Maggs 3rd, Cabrera 4th and Guillen 5th. Or alternatively stick Guillen at 2 in the order and let him run more, since he has the speed to get 20 bags and he has a solid OBP b/c of his high average. I agree w/ the poster who said Guillen is there to protect Miggy, but clearly the solution overall is to get Miggy higher in the lineup. If anything, you could bat him 3rd and let Maggs go 4th, since Ordonez is one of those hitters w/ excellent plate discipline who doesn't really need protection.
