Would be one heck of a lineup with a healthy McCann/Heyward in there for Francisco/Reed. Maybe we will get to see that when the Braves head to Toronto late next month

Maholm is a ground ball pitcher, so you go with lesser defender at third (and DH the better defender)? That makes sense...
Zito on Simmons (2/24/12):  if Simmons can be as good as Alexei that would shock me. If we could get Alexei and Lilli for Beachy and get cash I would do it. Being "arguably the best defensive SS in the minors" means nothing...

Uggla batting 2nd is terrifying but I guess it's not the worst option because he at least walks.

We really are getting the lineups absurdly early these days.

Fredi is trying to find a way to get someone on base for Justin. Can't say I blame him, BJ at the top of the order wasn't cutting it.

I think that's exactly why he is there. At this point I'm willing to try Uggla at the leadoff position.  We just can't keep having bases empty for Justin.

Why are we putting an inferior defender at 3B and Juan at DH?
Why is Uggla batting 2nd?
Is Fredi on drugs?

I actually don't mind Uggla in the second hold as much as I do Johnson starting at third base. That is just crazy to me.

I think Uggla will on base a few times this series. Maybe he will force him to think about it more.

Yeah, that doesn't make too much sense to me.  Juan is the better third baseman.  Oh well.

I kinda like the idea of putting Uggla higher in the order.  He gets on base at a better clip than both BJ and Simmons.
I stopped voting when I stopped taking drugs. I believe both of those acts are closely related to delusional behavior.

Agreed. Also Francisco is the type that hits best when playing the field. He's pretty bad at pinch hitting.

Uggla OBP suggests maybe he should bat leadoff.

I'd prefer Fransico at 3B, but CJ hasn't been as bad as advertised.....yet.

Really wanted McCann back for this series.

Uggla is 4/10 with 2 hrs vs Sanchez. Probably impacts his decision?

He was in Spring Training, but he's only played six games at third in the regular season.

Yea: it's quite puzzling.

Meanwhile: Uggla batting second makes a lot of sense, actually.

I like how fredi keep changes things up. Cj at 3rd is only a big deal if he costs is.a.run or the game lol.

Gonna be a tough seriez but at least no verlander. Their closee is valverde so well always have a shot.

I like this lineup. I'd be willing to flip Uggla and Simmons. I don't have a strong opinion on the 3B thing. Juan isn't all that fantastic either, but probably still better than Johnson.

surprised no one has cried for Schafer, but he's got dreadful numbers vs Sanchez.

We've pounded Annabel pretty good last few years.
