View Full Version : Lee to Bat Second

Supposedly Ozzie wants to have Carlos Lee bat second when a left hander starts and Jose Valentin aginst right handed starters. Not a great idea... has Ozzie looked at Carlos' split stats? Carlos is much better against right handers than against lefties, by almost 100 points in batting average (.218 against lefties/.317 against righties). Granted, that's better than Jose, but almost everyone batted better against left handers than these two.

Ya, I was wondering about that. If he wants Valentin in the two hole for right handers, that's fine, but I would prefer Rowand being the guy against lefties. I like Carlos in the two hole, but against everyone, not just lefties.
