I hope you are right, Jason. I really think that DeRosa is due to break out of his slump too, soon. I can't wait to see if they put Soto in and if he can carry his minor league numbers up to the bigs.

It also depends on the hitting you are talking about. I realized this during today's game. There is power hitting and timely hitting. Timely hitting is what is getting us through right now...with very little power hitting. However, if we got a huge surge of power hitting, timely hitting wouldn't be as important.

Yeah... not necessarily power hitting, just overall performance... that is why I have Theriot on there, I have Floyd 4th because I have a feeling he is gonna explode for 8-12 jacks in the last month!!!

I would love to see Floyd's bat just show up and hit 1 or 2. I know he has had a really tough month with his dad passing, but he is way better than he has been.

You've got to have Jones in there. He's just been too good after the break.

Would you rather have JJ or Theriot up in a key R.B.I. situation???

I have Theriot in my top five because of what you thought when you answered that question.

I'm not so sure I wouldn't take Jones in that situation. If there is a runner on first I'd probably take Theriot, b/c of Jones' tendency to hit into the dp. I'd probably swap Jones for Floyd if the list was mine, but I'd like to see everyone get hot.

I think the Big 3 - Aram, -Lee, and Soriano definately but after that my next pick would be Kendall. He failed one time vs. Arizona- but you can count on a great AB usually out of him.
