Let's go crazy here.
1. Reyes (speed+contact)
2. Bonifacio (speed+contact)
3. Lawrie/Cabrera (contact+ some power)
4. Bautista (power power power)
5. E5 (power power power)
6. Lawrie/Cabrera (contact+ some power)
9. Whoever is DH'ing or Izturis?
The tweets I have been reading all seem to say that the Jays have found their new #2 hitter. Most of the "experts" have him pegged to be hitting in the #2 slot. Tough to say. Maybe in the #5 spot. He's a switch hitter so that offers flexibility to break up two right handed hitters in EE and Bautista but I doubt they will not hit back to back. Thats why I can see him hitting 5th. He's not a big power hitter (20 hr potential) but he hits the ball well for avg and will put the ball in play a lot.
Personally I liked Rasmus and Lawrie near the top of the order. I thought they had a lot of success there last year. Rasmus definitely hit better when he was up near the top of the order. Same could be said for Lawrie.
