I am crazy for thinking Adam Lind could outperform Ludwick this season?

One fantasy website says this:

At age 25, Lind seemed like he might be poised for a breakout season if given an every day opportunity. Unfortunately, Lind will not get that opportunity. It appears he will be in a platoon situation with Kevin Millar as the team’s DH. This is a direct result of Lind’s inability to hit lefties. For his career, he is hitting just .240/.293/.359 against them.

None the less, I've got him sitting my fantasy team's 32 man roster (12 team).
Good luck, feel free to PM me

This year, yes. Lind should have a higher BA, but Ludwick will dominate in HRs (Even assuming a sizable regression for Ludwick) and will have higher Run and RBI. I worry about Lind's 16 BBs in 350 PAs which will cause a weak run total even if he becomes a full-time player.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Ludwick has way more power than Lind.

He will definitely be playing every day vs right handed pitching. I wouldn't start him vs lefties anyways. I think the Jays will be platooning Overbay vs lefties but you could also see Bautista take some starts away from Lind and Snider vs lefties.

I'd still gladly trade Lind for Ludwick and I'm not a huge Ludwick fan.

I think Lind should be on a team even in shallow leagues but he doesn't excite me much overall.
