Rising O's wrote:Markakis does not have the mental toughness to hit 3rd. Over his entire career he has shown himself to be a much better and productive hitter in the 2 spot. But it seems all of our managers are incapable of making this connection because they keep putting him back in the 3. After Hardy's 30 HRs last year it should have been a no brainer switch.
Zach wrote:I agree with Rising about Markakis in the 2 spot. He seems more comfortable in this position and it fits his game better (more of a contact hitter than a power hitter). I think that along with Hardy, Chris Davis could be another name to consider for that spot in the lineup. He has the power and has looked a lot more comfortable at the plate this year. Of course, we might not want to mess with a good thing by moving him up.
