“David Wright”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=7382 is hitting second tonight against the D-Backs. Personally, I prefer him fifth, but I don’t make out the line-ups.
Here’s what Wright had to say about his spot in the order: “I’m going to see some fastballs no matter where I hit. You’ve got some great protection up and down the lineup. It doesn’t bother me one way or another.
“Obviously, hitting two, the batters in the middle of the order are going to drive you in. Hitting five, there are going to be plenty of RBI opportunities and chances to score as well.’‘
