How would you set up the Sox lineup. Seeing guys like Harris, Uribe and Perez at the top of the order makes me want to vomit. We need people on base for Maggs & Thomas. How about this lineup:

Olivo
Lee
Ordonez
Thomas
Konerko
Crede
Rowand
Harris
Uribe

I would put Valentin in the leadoff spot once he returns from the DL. Certainly not your tradition lineup but someone needs to get on base.

But there's no speed at the top of that lineup!

Yes, but there is plenty of speed inside the Sox dugout! :smile:

Yeah but we know that will never happen. By some miracle we may see Ozzie realize it'd be nice to put some decent bats at the top of the order.

I'd like to see him stay in AAA for at least a month, make sure he's healthy and delay his arbitration.

Top of the order came up HUGE today - won the game for us. I know that they aren't as good as the Marlins or some other teams, but I like these guys.

Harris is on or off. Today was a good day for him - If he can do this a bit more, he'd be fine. I like Uribe.

I don't think our top of the order is as bad as some think.

I agree - you don't bring Reed up yet. We just don't have any reason to. I know he is projecting to be good, but I wouldn't bring him up yet and lose a year of him on arbitration unless I felt he'd be a difference maker - at this point, I don't think he is yet.

When Valentin comes back it should be

Uribe
Valentin
Ordonez
Thomas
Lee
Konerko
Crede
Rowand/Perez/Harris
Olivo/Alomar

For what it's worth there is a story on Whitesox. com that quotes Kenny Williams as saying that "Willie has been told he needs to step it up..."

I don't know if any conclusions can be drawn from that comment or not.
