.Our batting order would not strike fear in anyone. Seriuosly: 1. DeJesus (that's fine) 2. Barney (good) 3. Valbuena (WTF) 4. Soriano (meh, can be a decent #4 when he is hot) 5. Castro (not a #5, and never will be) 6. LaHair (still not doing well, but probably a better fit at 5 than 6 with this lineup) 7. Jackson (sure, he needs to find his spot) 8. Clevenger (perfect) 9. Volstad (obvious) So...why bat a guy with a .228 avg in the #3. You may as well bat Soriano in #3 if you are not putting Castro/LaHair there.
