here we all were trying to figure out who hits #2 (before getting melky)
now thats taken care of
now we're figuring ok who bats #5
i bet that gets taken care of soon too
if you're going for it , best to have big name players hitting #2 and #5
if JB gets hurt there's no one besides EE to count on for 25+ hr/90+ rbis
and that would suck
just like it would suck if one of the top 4 starters got hurt or romero still sucks
then we're down to 3 quality starters
so best to get another proven starter at least - preferably a good 3-4 starter
now if he demands his 30 starts then i dont know
it would suck
Tell me what team had 3+ guys hit 25+ homeruns and drive in 90+ rbis last season.
It's pretty rare to have a very good offensive 2B. Izturiz and Boneface will do a fine job there, providing sufficient defense and good to great speed on the base paths. Second base shouldn't be a position to worry about, especially with the line up the Jays now have. Even the Giants/Yankees/Dodgers/Rangers have a weak spot or two.
Yea, that's my understanding too. Man how I wish we still had Aaron Hill.
