    I personally think Wright should be moved to the 5th spot. BUT…if they end up trading Beltran at the deadline, 2 lineup shakes in a 2 month period could mess with his mind.

      If you move Wright to 5, who would bat 3 and 4 in your lineup?

        In my opinion it is a BIG deal to move Wright from third to fifth. The old version of Wright as a hitter (2004 thru mid season 2008) would k about 115 times. This new version will K about 165 times. Those 50 ab's without making any contact in that position of the order is huge. Even if someone hits .250..those 12-13 extra hits a year would probably win a few ball games. Who knows what the compound effect is on the lineup, extending rallys, etc. Unless David reverses course..I feel his bat would be an asset at number 5. He would still be a middle of the order run producer.
