for him to play dh is very good and the years and money are right, but it wouldnt shock me to see him drop down a notch.
Well BJ and Pena both get on base a lot so I don't see much drop there to be honest. Also add to that Longo will start getting on base more as he gets comfortable in the majors.

Speed at the top bottom and middle. And power throughout, I honestly think this line up is better than the Yankees line up.
Call me bias, but I could see us out producing them this season.
Eh, I'd rather have the 2 to 6 hitters like: Crawford - BJ - Pena - Longo - Burrell. Splits up the lefties well and I think keeps everyone better suited. Having Burrell and Pena bat in front of Crawford is asking for disaster on the base paths and eliminates his best asset.
