    Hernandez batting order number

    Is there any reason he always bats toward the bottom? What would be wrong with putting him after Rolen?

    Well this may be a rule I don't know about. Is it an NL only rule? Correct me if I am wrong but didn't Pudge bat up in the order for Detroit?

    It's in Dusty Baker's book of rules.

    Personally I think it's time to go the LaRussa route. #7) Catcher, #8) Pitcher, #9) Stubbs.

    Actually in all seriousness I think that would be effective in one case: when Leake is pitching.
    "He looked like a surfer kid from SoCal," manager Dusty Baker says. "He didn't say much, but you could tell he was cool."

    Leake should be hitting 2nd when he pitches.
