My April- May- June starting line up for the Braves


Yunel Escobar SS good leadoff hitter

Mark Kotsay CF He's good for 2nd hitter

Chipper Jones 3b He's playing like he's 25

Mark Teixiera 1B our clean up guy

Brian McCann C Could hit clean up, too

George Blanco LF he needs to bat 6th so he can knock in some runs, build confidence

Kelly Johnson 2B Kelly hits well in the bottom of the line up

Jeff Francouer RF He needs to hit to be moved up in the order

Tim Hudson SP he wins 18 games and the Cy Young this year

Go Braves!

Why would you seriously bat Francouer in the 8 spot? Blanco or Johnson should be there, but not Jeff. He is a solid 6 man or 5 when McCann takes a day off.

Outside of that I would have no other real problems, still like the platoon with Diaz/Blanco. Diaz has good skills at the plate just struggles with the righties. But as you look at his(Diaz) career #'s they are not that bad:
