Now Batting Leadoff, Nick Swisher
Found this interesting from Yahoo player notes:
Apr 8 OF Nick Swisher continued to impress from the leadoff spot, going 1-for-4 with a double and his ninth walk of the year Monday. What manager Ozzie Guillen really likes, however, is the .469 on-base percentage. Enough so that when Jerry Owens is ready to return from the 15-day disabled list with his groin problem, not only could there not be a spot, but there definitely might not be a leadoff spot for the speedster. "I'd rather be a guy who gets on base," Guillen said of his leadoff hitter. "All of a sudden he gets on base six times in a row by walks, and we need people on base when you have (Orlando) Cabrera and (Jim) Thome behind you. You get on base, you're going to score a lot of runs."
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
