Well, personally I don't like it that there's not a clear cut hitter to protect Arod and I also would want to make sure that the kids continue to get good pitches to hit. So maybe something like this:
Nivar has speed. No power but good speed.
Young is nice in the two hole. Does have some speed.
Blalock has power. In front of Arod, he will continue to get good pitches to hit.
Arod cleanup to protect the young hitters again this year and have plenty of rbi opportunities.
Tex is a switch hitter, and should perform better this year.
Mench has power, not sure about average yet.
Greer hasn't played in a couple of years, but he does know how to hit.
Gonzales in the 8th spot puts no pressure on the rookie to perform this season.
Diaz is not a scary hitter at all, so 9th is where he goes.
Spots 5-8 are all interesting. Mostly it depends on how healthy the guys are, and how are they performing.
These are just my opinions, not set in stone by the Rangers or anything so I hope no one gets the wrong idea.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
