Ausmus challenging Castellanos to bat second

"Nick's done a lot of things well," Brad Ausmus said. "He's hit the ball. He's run really well. He's been aggressive on the bases. And I know he wants to hit second."

  • You can't have a slow runner at one or two. Sorry but baseball 101 says this is a bad move. They need to go get a fast CF to hit leadoff and Kinsler should be 2nd. Kinsler hit too many solo Hrs last year and that's because he is leadoff.

  • I say go for it..:-)

    The batting order (should) be

    1) Kinsler
    2) Nick
    3) Miggy
    4) JD
    5) VMart
    6) Upton
    7) McCann
    8) Mahtook//Collins//Jones
    9) Iglesias

    Idk about you guys but I think we need to Split Miggy & VMart up.

  • No, they are both the problem, I don't think Sanchez or pelfrey are gonna be any good this year, I hope they both have great seasons, but I have a guy feeling they will hold this team back as well as the middle relief
