Harris - 4

Haven't seen this much this spring. Seems like a good thing to be practicing.

As for Milledge batting first, I think its a little past due. His OBP is not as good as we would like up top, but it was .330 (33%)last year and better than a number of other leadoff types (e.g., Soriano lifetime OBP of .329, Carl Crawford was .319 last year). Until we get a Brian Roberts type up top (.378) its probably the best we can do.

Welcome aboard to Bard.

Looking forward to seeing what Bard does in the next couple weeks.
I'd like to see Zimmerman in the lineup all the time, considering that he's not exactly blowing anyone away with his bat this Spring.

If Milledge can pick up where he left off last year, he'll do well at the top of the lineup. His numbers after the All-Star break - .299/.355/.448 - were much better than his season totals.

If he can cut down his caught-stealing, he can be cataylst for the offense, even if he's OBP isn't ideal.

As for Original Zim, he had a great spring last year which lead to a slow start (Opening Night excluded), so I'm not too concerned about his numbers this spring. I like that Acta is limiting his playing time - save it for when the games matter.

I'm glad Dunn is coming back though. The WBC showed he needs some reps in the field, especially if we're gonna try him at first.

Didn't Milledge have something like 28 steals last year, with about a 75% success rate? In less than a full season, too. JayBeeee would have us believe that Milledge is a total disaster on the basepaths, always running into an out. But that's clearly not the case.
