Any knowledgeable Rockies fans out there?

When Walker and Wilson are back in the lineup, what will the batting order be? And specifically, where will Castilla hit?

I haven't read anything recently in the Denver Post, but here is my best guess.

2-Clayton
3-Helton
4-Wilson
5-Burnitz
6-Castilla
7-Walker
8-Johnson

Walker could move up to the 5 spot if he produces. That would be quite a line up ;-D , until Walker injures himself and Holliday is back in the 7 spot. Honestly, I don't think it will matter who hits 4 through 7 because they can all produce, and this lineup will produce lot's of runs.

I just read something in the paper about Walker coming back as the 5 hitter, out of respect, but realistically he is no better than a 7 hitter on their current squad.

I dont think Burnitz the team leader in HRs will be dropped to the 7th spot.

That's my best guess, as well.

Burnitz is hitting homers, but not all that much more...plus, having Castilla split the two lefties is ideal. Look at how the Ls and Rs are split up nicely in that lineup.
