The Kickoff

January 04, 2007

On the Orioles' projected lineup

[Melvin] Mora is going to kill us in the 2 spot. He's 35 and on a three-year down trend. I'd move [Jay] Payton and [Corey] Patterson to the 2 hole.

Against righties, [Kevin] Millar should definitely be in the lineup over Jay Payton. For all of his many faults, Millar does do a good job of getting on base.

Provided [Aubrey] Huff and [Jay] Gibbons can stay healthy, they both are potential 30-homer guys.
