Provides excellent power, and great average hitting.Evan Longoria-3B-Imagine if the 3 guys in front of him are on base. Wow, the amount of runs scored can be astronomical. Can usually never be pitched around well enough.Carlos Pena-1B-When playing in front of Evan, still gets the shaft of the pitches. However, when Evan Almighty is in front, this one can get anything he wants pitch wise.Dan Johnson-DH-Showed a lot down in Durham and had an excellent pinch hit against Papelbon in Boston. Just a flat out better average and power hitter at this stage then Cliff Floyd and Rocco Baldelli.Ben Zobrist-2B-No need for 3 leadoff batters in the lineup(Aki, Perez, Bartlett) and Zobrist has improved his defense well this season. Great switch hitter as well and can knock in the runs.Dioner Navarro-C-Terrible with RISP, but is a great average hitter and has a good OBP for a catcher.Jason Bartlett-SS-Having him here is great to get someone on base with speed if just starting out the inning, only to have Perez lay down a bunt and move him over. Impressive GG defense as well.I seriously doubt anything is getting through that outfield defense there. It's just too fast to let anything get in it. I know Floyd has been hitting good, but he has up and down times and while I appreciate him, he's veteran presence needs to be what we need most in the playoffs. Of course if Dan Johnson turns out to struggle mightily I don't have a problem throwing Cliff in at DH. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
