Jeff Banister has decided to shake up the lineup for the fourth game of the season and I like it.
4/9/15 Lineup @ Oakland
Martin 8, Choo 9, Beltre 5, Fielder DH, Rua 7, Moreland 3, Andrus 6, Odor 4, Corporan 2, Martinez 1.
I love Elvis Andrus. I think he is one of the biggest keys to this team. However, I do not think he should be hitting in the two hole. I am in the Keith Law camp of putting an OPS machine in that spot in the order, not a guy who lacks power and is there just in hopes of moving over the leadoff guy.
I thought Elvis batting second was something that had gone away with Wash, but as we have seen, Elvis was in that spot the first few games, even donating a free out with his sac bunt in the first inning last night.
Hooray for Banister and hooray for change. I have a good feeling about today and tomorrow. Time to start a win streak.
