Thought I'd give this a bump considering Cabrera has been on a tear since being moved to the 4-Hole... ;-D

I can only dream of his production if he were batting 3.

Lets just hope he either gets moved up to third when Mags comes back or keeps batting clean-up... I'm a little worried Leyland will be stubborn and move him back to 5th... :-o

If you combine tonight's performance with the fact that he hit two homers on one leg over the weekend......there's no excuse for him to be hitting behind anybody.

.....not to mention Guillen's best numbers of his career have been in the five spot....

I would love to see him stay at 4th. Love the thought of Maggs ahead of him. I think Miggs is a better bad ball hitter than Maggs and so wouldn't be hurt as much by not having a big bat behind him.

Totally agree with you there. I really like Mags in the 3 spot and Cabrera batting clean-up. Maggs really isn't a number four hitter as he is lacking some power. He will still get his RBI opportunities and the fact that he hits a lot of singles to drive runs in just means he'll be on base more for Cabrera. Not to mention, assuming they bat Guillen in the 5th spot, that should provide decent protection for Cabrera.

Damn, I had him on my bench in my 8 team league yesterday. %-6 I didn't realize what a tear he has been on lately. 4 HRs in the last 4 days is pretty impressive.
