On Nick Markakis as a No. 3 hitter

Interested to see what the opinion is now about Nick hitting third? The board was kind of split over it a month back. My two cents says he is doing just fine hitting there. He is hitting to all fields and looks very patient at the plate.

I stand by what I said before - it is too early to make major changes in the order. Let it be for a while. Change up the lower half of the order based on injuries and who's hot (or more often who do we need to get out of the lineup).

He's our No. 3 hitter by default, just as Tejada is our No. 4 hitter by default.
