Ninety percent of fantasy owners look at his poor numbers in Coors in 2002 and 2003 and disregard his productive numbers in Chicago in 2004. But in 2002 and 2003 he was 22 and 23 years old! Other than monsters like Pujols, how many guys that age can really hit? Uribe's second half numbers in 2004 were especially good, and he's been tearing it up this spring. All signs point to an emerging hitter.

The latest word is that he'll bat 7th in the line-up. Personally, I think he should be hitting in the 2-hole. I'm not sold on Iguchi and I wouldn't be surprised if he loses the 2-hole and Uribe gets it. If he does, a line like 290-30-90-100-15 is not out the question.

Uribe hitting 7th? Everywhere I've seen has him hitting 9th. Did Ozzie Guillen say something to the contrary?

Please inform me, as there is a debate going on in my league over this. I'm praying Uribe gets into the 2 hole at some point this year.

The "projected line-ups" I've seen (for example espn's) have Uribe hitting in the 7-spot. I don't know whether that's based on the "official" word from the team or just speculation. Personally, I think Uribe is hitting too well in ST to get stuck in the 9-hole, but what I think and a buck will get you on the bus.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.
