Aviles Hitting Leadoff

Bobby V rolled out this doozy of a lineup yesterday:

  1. SS Mike Aviles
  2. CF Jacoby Ellsbury
  3. 2B Dustin Pedroia
  4. 1B Adrian Gonzalez
  5. 3B Kevin Youkilis
  6. DH David Ortiz
  7. LF Cody Ross
  8. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia
  9. RF Ryan Sweeney

I can only hope Aviles hitting first was to get him some quick at-bats before exiting the game. Aviles should not be hitting leadoff for this team. His career OBP is well below league average at .318 and his 3.49 pitches seen per plate appearance would rank him at the bottom of the league. If Bobby V moves Aviles to 9th and shifts everyone up one spot that lineup is actually pretty good.

    i have a feeling that “I can only hope” is going to be used a lot in regards to Bobby V decisions.
