I was hoping Betemit would be higher.
for once i cant argue with Jim here...where else would you bat Betemit in that lineup?
right now I would for sure have him above Avila, who is struggling lately. might even think about hitting him ahead of Guillen. especially against RH pitcher with the splits Betemit currently has- .301/.360/.466/.826/.
Stephen Drew breaking his ankle was just bad luck, and a bad break, literally. someone can just say to Drew, sorry about your damn luck.
