The 2 Hole Open Thread!

It seems most of you believe Soriano is a done deal in the leadoff spot, but the point of these open threads on the lineup is to solicit your opinions on if players belong in these spots in the lineup.

The 2 hole in the lineup is a critical one in most lineups as the player designated for this role must demonstrate excellent plate discipline. The Chicago Media has DeRosa as the Cubs starter at 2B and hitting out of the 2 hole. ???

I don't even know if he belongs as the starter let alone batting second, your thoughts?

I think DeRosa will not be our starter. My vote is Theriot

I agree Moe. We need alittle more speed in the lineup. I'd actually like to see a 123 of The Riot, Murton and Lee, but it looks like Pinella likes Soriano in the leadoff spot. If Soriano does bat leadoff, we need a solid, patient 2 hiter and Murton or The Riot if he starts would be fine by me. If DeRosa starts he should bat in the 7 hole right in front of Izturis.

I don't know why people always want to put a 2nd baseman in the two hole. I mean, if the guy fits the bill then fine. DeRosa is FAR from a number two hitter.


It's a no brainer imo, we'll have to see what happens.

BTW DeRosa starts the season at 2nd but will be replaced be The Riot by May. IMO.

If DeRosa starts he should bat 7/8 in the lineup.
