With only 9 days left until Pitchers and Catchers report I have decided to do a 9 part series in which each day I will take a look at one of the 9 starting positions and evaluate it. Think of this as a way to make these last 9 days go by faster. I will also list the positions in the order in which I think the 2009 Lineup should be set.
#2 Right Field
Jayson Werth came up huge last year. He put up solid numbers even though he didn't start in the first few months. This year will be his first year with the starting job in Philly. I expect him to have an even better season and to put up higher numbers than most people think he is capable of. Backing him up will be Jenkins who is a solid player. With Werth batting #2 in the lineup, it will show off his speed and bat a little more. It worked well in the playoffs, why change it for this season?
Overall Grade: B+
