    Blake, I'm curious as to why you think he'll have 580 AB's. That's lower than his last two seasons and I don't see anyone taking away AB's.

  5. Jones: Not offering an opinion except that I think he'll do okay since he'll likely only play against righties.

  6. That's what I was thinking. I assume Raburn will eventually get some of those at bats and there's a chance that Inge will take some as well. I'm also assuming he misses a week or so with some small injury. He's never really been hurt so I figure he's due. I also thought he might be a bit more selective and walk a few extra times.

    That all added up to fewer at bats. We shall see.
