a lot of the reason why wright has been batting second recently is because delgado is in Puerto Rico with his new-born child and wife. this has let randolph see how wright can hit in the 2 slot on a regular basis. havin lo duca hit 6th will greatly reduce his value and i think at times wright should hit 2nd but not when lo duca is in the lineup. i was a fan of having beltran hit 2nd at the start of last season but lo duca convinced me that he had the contact ability to hit there.
