Leifer sucks and every time I see him play I become more and more convinced that he is never going to turn into even a decent major league power hitter. I for one wouldn't mind if we eventually tried to move Carlos but not if it means we have to watch this guy day in and day out until Borchard is ready.

A .220 batter hitting 3rd. F-ing ridiculous. How moronic is this...............What does he not want to move anybody else out of their spot. How can where someone hits in the order even matter.................What an idiot.

Hey, we've got a four-game winning streak. Why are any of you surprised Manuel would slot Jeff Liefer #3?

Rowand is batting around .200 in the two spot too. :?:

I always thought Rowand was better than Leifer.

I'd take his 120ab sample over the season though, rather than 15ab's.

He hits better in the two hole then he does later in the order. I don't see what the problem is.

I was pointing out the fact that it was ridiculous that Leifer bat 3rd with a .220 batting average yet the guy with the.215 average is fine to bat at the top of the order. Did Rowand bat #2 any last year? I don't think 15 ab's now 18 I guess is a big enough sample to say he hits better at the top of the order, I could be wrong and if so all appologies my bad. I don't think Rowand has the speed of a #2 guy but this team is slow all the way through so who cares.

Liefer sucks, I agree.

I think he did bat some two last year. He can run pretty well, he's not as fast as Valentin or Harris though. This is the time to find out if he can handle hitting in the two spot.
