That didn't take long. Although I like AJ in the two hole better than Alexi. I don't think Alexi takes enough pitches.

We'll see if he hits or just swings.

PLEASE, don't turn this thread into another BA/Wise bitch fest. Go to the Roadhouse thread if you want to whine.
I'm looking forward to see what Getz does in the leadoff spot, I hope he thrives and becomes a staple at that spot.

I agree.....and no one is whining.....I was just pointing out what should be the obvious.....WTS I'm excited to see what Getz can do in the leadoff role.

Wow...didn't even make it through the first series. Hopefully Ozzie doesn't have to tinker much after this shake-up. Let the guys settle into their roles for a few weeks and then make adjustments as needed.

I'm looking forward to him leading off as well.

This is what I was calling for on Opening Day. Thank God.

I do like Getz batting leadoff more than wise, but I think it wastes a bit of his potential in the 2 hole. AJ worked well in the 2 hole last year though.

Not ideal, but better than what we were doing.

Poor Wise, only lasted two games. Wow.

Perhaps Ozzie just felt Wise was pressing too hard. I'm sure this guy wants to succeed.

He really helped us during the stretch last year, so I'm hoping he can get a few hits today.

Props to Ozzie he didn't leave him up there longer. Only a matter of time before we see Owens or Anderson in there though.

It says in that article that Ozzie made a big change in the 3rd game of 2008.....he put Quentin in LF. Hopefully Getz at leadoff works just as well.

Getz has all of the tools to be a leadoff hitter and he already looks like one IMO. He's leadoff at different levels in the past and already says that he feels comfortable leading off at the major league level.

I'm excited to see what he can do.

I thought Ozzie's comment to Joe Cowley of the Sun-Times was interesting.

"It's not his fault (i.e. Wise) he's hitting lead off."

Hmmmm...I wonder what Ozzie's implying here.

Meaning Ozzie is playing him out of position in the batting order because he felt he had no choice? HMMM looks like he was sending a message to KW.

Is Getz really deserving of leadoff either? We're kind of crowning a guy over 1 game because he stretched that hit into a double (when it seemed more like a defensive miscue). The truth is Ozzie has been handcuffed, anyone he'll pick will have his flaws. I love Kenny, but I'm very disappointed in what he did to this offense this year, we have similar problems as last year and still no lead off man

Getz is already showing some of the skills of a good leadoff hitter. Not to mention that he's been leading off at different levels since his college days at Michigan.

He also doesn't seem phased by leading off in the majors......he has confidence and seems locked and loaded and ready to go......which I like.

The interesting thing is that right now, Wise and the Missle's lines are exactly the same.
