    Has a player ever batted 4th in the NL in slugging percentage and batted 7th?

    One could argue its helping take some pressure off Hamilton and let him see better pitches, since most anyone who can read a box score knows there are two dead outs (Ross & Pitchers Spot) batting behind him.

    I don't have a problem where Narron hits Hamilton.
    Remember - he is a rookie and has all the other issues.
    Putting him in a low pressure lineup spot is fine with me.
    Then if he has a good season next year you ask him to do more.

    Since Josh Hamilton has never been a ML player, I don't think he would be eligible for Comeback Player.

    I believe he was joking.

    Caveat and Emperor, I agree with both of you. Actually, I like how Narron for the most part has tried to find lineups that work the best for everyone.

    He would share it with hi AL counterpart Chris Denorfia. Whom I am told from the German Genticists that created him, heals very fast and should be ready by August.
