Wheres Votto batting?

Postby GreatestShowOnEarth » Mon Feb 16, 2009 4:32 pm

Where did he bat last year? i seem to remember him batting somewhere around 6th but i could be wrong. This year i'm thinking he should be 3rd/4th in the order. Am i crazy to think that?

I have him 4th.
1. Taveras (Dusty said he'll lead off)
2. Bruce
3. Phillips
4. Votto
5. Encarnacion

Yeah, but when he goes 0-4 on Opening Day, Dusty will move him to bat 8th.

I'm not sure about Dickerson 2nd, he doesn't have the track record to justify being able to get on base for Philips, Votto and Encarnacion. I think Bruce would be a much better 2nd batter even though he strikes out alot. Votto should bat 4th or 5th.

If given full time duties, I'm thinking that Keppinger would fit well in the #2 spot if he can keep the doubles (and health) up. However, it's irrelevant... Votto should be near the 4th or 5th spot since he's one of the few on the team that can hit with power. Bruce will eventually clean up, I imagine, but they'll probably go with the slightly seasoned guy first.

It's a bit silly not to split up the best 2 lefty bats IMO. Move Votto to the 3rd spot and it looks better, I like Dickerson but not sure about him hitting that high at first.
