I have McLouth 6th. 6th has been called the "second leadoff spot"[/quote]
You're right, you have him 6th, not 7th. I've never heard about this second leadoff spot theory before.[/quote]

Here is a link that discuss it:

I was thinking about Nate at the leadoff spot and Nyjer down in the lineup, maybe even 8th.


I have to disagree Colin. If Morgan were 8th, it would totally be a waste of his speed hitting in front of the pitcher.


We are already wasting his speed right now. I don't like how Russell doesn't take risks on the basepaths. They need to give him for chances. Andy also. He's no Nyjer, but he's not slow.

Morgan is wasting his own speed. He's just not a good base stealer. I don't understand why it's taking him so long to realize that he needs to start his slide one stride earlier.

Or he could slide to the side. I have never seen somebody go past the base more than Nyjer.
