Just got to thinking about the Jays 2009 lineup and assuming no FAs are signed or trades are made they go into Spring Training looking like this:
LF Lind or Snider
DH Lind or Snider
So how do those starters figure to make the batting order? One glaring hole from last season was the lack of a true leadoff hitter and that still exists. Here's what I'd like to see the batting order look like:
I know Overbay lacks the speed of a true leadoff hitter but he has the batting eye and OBP to be effective in the role (more effective then anyone else in the lineup)...the 5-6-7 hitters are pretty interchangeable if Rolen is health and producing he could be #5 but I'd like to see what the youngsters can do in important spots in the order too...
