He hits third for a reason.

Enlighten the rest of us then, why is he hitting third because it certainly isn't power. A lower slugging percentage than even much maligned (and batting 40 points lower) Joe Crede.

Okay, it's a cliche, but the only stat that matters is the number of wins you have at the end of the season.

You want your speediest guys at the top, and Willie is speedier than Rowand, so why would you have Rowand bat in front of Willie?

Rowand's been clutch as anyone, and that's the spot you want your clutch hitter. VERY strategic.

I didn't say I wanted Rowand batting 2nd. Podsednik and Iguchi are a monster of a 1-2 combo at the top of the order. I think Rowand should bat 6th or 7th until he starts really driving the ball again.

I agree, so you should set up your order to maximize each guy's potential. Your #3 batter should not be flirting with a .400 slugging percentage.

I can see that. Although in 1985, the St. Louis Cardinals made it to the World Series with Tommy Herr batting third with a .416 slugging percentage, albeit with 110 RBIs.

Aaron has become the cluth hit guru around here. He does the winning runs last night after the big hit the night before on two strikes as part of the come from behind rally. He's like .380 with RISP currently
