    New Britain lineup

    It seems like it took Oswaldo Arcia's promotion for the Rock Cats to get the top of the lineup correct FINALLY.

    Aaron Hicks
    Chris Herrmann
    Oswaldo Arcia
    Chris Colabello
    Evan Bigley

    How was that this difficult? On base guys ahead of power guys . . . sheesh.

    I like the result this is going to have on these five players (and maybe Romero batting sixth).

    Agree
    I always hated to see Hicks bat 5th / clean-up.

    Agreed also. Hicks has some power, but his speed is more of an asset at the top of the order.

    That's a pretty solid lineup now. Tosoni should be hitting up higher too. I think people forget that he's a pretty good ball player because he just can't get it going this year.

    It will be fun to see what they can do for the rest of the year with these pieces in place.

    Where does Benson fit in the lineup when he returns next month?

    Benson and Tosoni can fill in at 4 and 5, probably, but something's gotta give in the OF then. Maybe Bigley can move up to Rochester and they can see if the power this year is for real.

    Parmelee this year has been "Tosoni-ed." Strange use of two valuable prospects.

    have to admit that I don't see what you see in Tosoni... seems like org filler with the occasional cup of coffee.

    I'm with you. Tosoni will be 26 years old in a few days, and has an ops of .580 in AA. Please forget about him as a "prospect". He's a 5th outfielder at best
