15 BBs and 6 Ks in 80 PAs... unreal.

except that A.J doesnt hit for avg or power at all this year.
.322 slg and .222 avg just wont cut it.
According to the St Petersburg Times, "Manager Joe Maddon didn't want to make any commitments to the changes he made to the batting order, saying only it was the best combination for Monday. But the move of hot-hitting C John Jaso into the fifth spot against right-handers is likely to be more than a one-night stand, as is the demotion of cold-swinging Carlos Peña, who is likely to now hit sixth and seventh. Maddon said it just made sense, as Jaso and No. 3 hitter Ben Zobrist have consistently had the best at-bats, and he wanted them on either side of cleanup hitter Evan Longoria. "(Jaso) right now affords the best protection for Longo, and I think Zo's got the best chance to get on for Longo," Maddon said. "So I think it's a nice little Longo sandwich we've got going on right now." And Peña, who homered in the fourth inning but remains in a miserable slump (10-for-75), said it made sense to him, too. "No negative feelings about it all," Peña said. "I know there is strategy involved. I like to keep the right perspective on things. And right now it's really not about me; it really isn't." The lineup will look different tonight against Boston LHP Jon Lester, with Willy Aybar at DH (and possibly hitting fifth) and Dioner Navarro behind the plate."
