    Yeah, it would suck to get too many home runs from the 2nd spot in the order.

    Yeah fur sure. Although...it would cut down on Mauer's GIDP.

    I think it would suck to have so many runners on base that we are concerned about Mauer's GIDP's.

    Lol, that's not quite what I meant but I get the point, . The mid 2000's Johnson would serve just as well or better that the '09 version at #2 or lead-off. The point in the discussion was that high OBP guys who are big and slow are likely more valuable in those spots than speedy guys who can't get on base much in the first place.

    But I deserve the abuse, keep it coming.

    The real question is, can he bunt?

    See,there you go, that's why the HR's would be wasted, the priority for a solid Gardy #2 is bunting. Can't sacfrifice RISP with actual runs.

    Discussion about Benson leading off--moot point. Unless Mastroianni is on the DL, Benson will be in Rochester.
