If Xavier Avery has another good two weeks I would like to see him come back and hit in the two hole. He has a solid OBA and would provide some awesome speed along with Roberts at the top of the lineup. I'm sure Steve Pearce is a nice guy but we should be playing our future in LF and Pearce isn't it.
I think a lineup of:
would be a bit more consistent that what we have now. Substitute Headley for Andino/Flaherty and you might have a 4.5 to 4.7 run per game lineup.
Interesting possibility. I would prefer Avery in the 9 hole, but we don't always get our wishes haha.
I do think Avery is up eventually. He's been the hottest player in the minors this week besides maybe his teammate LJ Hoes.
Also on Hardy, his defense has been so damn good this year I didn't realize he was even struggling to get on base like this.
