If, for whatever reason, Freel isn't the leadoff hitter, I go with the following
Any lineup I produce has Eddie hitting second, by the way. That's where I dig putting young hitters.
Woah pass me waht you are smoking. No way I am batting Kearns and EE before Delipe. What is everyone's obsession with not badding Felipe high in the order?
And if Felipe doesn't get on base enough how does Kearns and EE?
Your logic seems flawed. I can understand you wanting to bat EE 2nd if Freel isn't playing everyday because has no ceiling right now, but not Kearns.
Felipe 15 (2nd on team)
EE 3 (in limited playing time)
No way I am going with that lineup.
