Who Should Hit Second For Detroit?

Note that I didn’t write ‘who will hit second’, it looks pretty certain to be L’il Will Rhymes.  But that’s just Jim Leyland, and what does he know about filling out a lineup card, am I right?  So the question is:  if you managed the Detroit Tigers, which of the starting 9 gets the nod to bat second?

    I voted Magglio for the second hitter. Fantastic OBP and plenty of power.

    • Chris Hannum

      I wouldn’t mind seeing Magglio leading off a la Jeter. The man gets on base, but he’s a GIDP machine – I’m never really excited to see him hitting with a man on first.

        Definitely agree on Maggs at leadoff, but I felt like that paradigm (of speedy Jackson leading off) would be even harder to shift. Killer OBP from Maggs.

      I voted for Rhymes

      Maggs batting second is definitely an interesting idea though. My question is who would bat third then? Perhaps Miggy and V-Mart fourth?

      Definitely thinking outside the box. I am gonna try that in MLB: The Show the next few games.

        Definitely would still want Cabby fourth.

  • Michael C

    I’d go with Magglio 2nd, Cabrera 3rd, Martinez 4th.

    The occasional extra bat Cabrera would get at the end of a close game could be the difference between winning and losing.
