I know Hanleys a speed demon and you'd think to put him as the leadoff man. But i think he'll generate more power numbers later in his career, plus he's a righty. If De Aza ends up being the real deal, If he can steal bases and get decent at bats, we can move Hanley into the 2. Now we have a lefty leadoff followed by a jeter type hitter. then so on...

L De Aza
R Ramirez
R Cabrera
L Jacobs
R Uggla
L Hermida
R Willingham
R Olivo

or if Hermida is as good as advertised

L De Aza
R Ramirez
L Jacobs
R Cabrera
L Hermida
R Uggla
R Willingham
R Olivo

I see Hanley having much more power than Jeter. I'd say Hanley's a Nomar type hitter at his peak.

If Hermida pans out he becomes the perfect #2 hitter...not the 5th guy

I still want this lineup

BJ Upton CF
J Hermida RF
H Ramirez SS
M Cabrera 3B
J Willingham LF
M Jacobs 1B
D Uggla 2B
Insert Name C
D Willis SP


Of course there is no way the Drays let go of Upton now that he is murdering the ball :(

Number two hitter is usually high OBP little to average pop? Good batting average, line drive hitter? Thats what ive always thought of it, what are the expectations of Hermida?

great eye and OBP with good linedrive type of power. think of JD Drew, literately with the injuries.

He had over 100 BB one year in AA

pretty much exactly that. patient hitter, walks a lot, he could develop more power but probably just average pop early on.


course if he doesn't stay healthy we'll have no idea what he can do.

But do you see Hanley leading off for much longer?

Hanley is more Miggy Tejada power wise, I think

Either one is good (though Nomar is more good.)

I don't see De Aza in the lineup in 2 years, but that's just me.

I didnt expect to see Cabrera on the team two years later after his first few weeks coming out of AA , even with the walk off. But the ball jumps off De Azas bat. He seems more confident than Abercrombie or especially Reed. Yesterdays at the game in person Reed looked like a little kid, no way hes a major league starter, scared at the plate almost...

Blind, we called him KKKabrera

Then stupid and ironically bigoted too.

Cabrera has what's called a pedigree, De Aza does not. De Aza does not do anything exceptionally well. He has a minor league career average of .266, 12 career minor league homeruns almost a consistent 2:1 K:BB ratio a career 70% SB percentage and never more than 35 SB's in a season or 45 RBI, or had a full season average above .280.

So tell me one thing he's done in his minor league career that indicates he should "stick." And looking better than Reed is not one of them.

really? He put up an incredible 793OPS at the ripe age of 20. That's amazing

I just think he's going to hit a lot more doubles than homers, like Nomar. Whereas Tejada generates most of his SLUG from home runs (For a guy with 250 career homers in 10 seasons, his .479 SP is awfully low)
