Bonifacio should start.. whether its in left or at 2nd. Izturis could start at 2nd, but I think he was signed as a supersub... and we're better off having him get Bonifacio, Reyes and Lawrie days off rather than have him play everyday.

Also I'm not sure if anyone heard... but Blair brought up an interesting point on the air today. Mentioned the name of Jerry Manuel. Experience with Buerhle managing the white sox and Reyes managing the Mets. Has the Expos tie as well. Has a world series, but not as a manager... so he is likely still hungry.

Thoughts?
No no no. Bonifacio isn't good defensively at 2nd, he's adequate at best. I think Izturis was brought in to play 2B. I dont think you give a guy 9million to be a bench player.
