I had read that Jordan Danks compared to Darin Erstad offensively. [The good, young version of Erstad, not the craptacular AARP version of Erstad that Ozzie stupidly played with regularity on the 2007 team.]
But regardless of whether he'll be a #2 or a #7/8/9 hitter, he's not likely to become a leadoff man.
