On Jay Payton as the Orioles' everyday left fielder

I think it's worth it to have a good defense for the pitchers, and Payton isn't such a liability offensively that he can't contribute at the bottom of the lineup.

It wasn't like defense was a huge problem last year. If anything, the O's should be erring on the side of scoring more runs.

It puts pressure on both [Jay] Gibbons and [Kevin] Millar to produce.
