Prospectus Triple Play: Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies, New York Mets

The Orioles remain atop the AL East, but struggled against one of the AL's middle class over the weekend.

3B Brandon Inge SS Ramon Martinez 1B Dmitri Young RF Craig Monroe DH Ivan Rodriguez LF Marcus Thames 2B Omar Infante C Vance Wilson CF Nook Logan More and more we're seeing non-traditional leadoff men like Brandon Inge--hitters whose game revolves more around on-base ability, and even extra-base power, rather than speed--being slotted at the top of the order, as teams begin to embrace OBP and more efficient ways of assembling a lineup. So why, then, do so many teams continue to bat Punch-and-Judy guys in the #2 hole, as if the game still revolves around bunting and playing for one run at a time? How hard is it to sit down and think to yourself "Who do I want getting more at-bats over the course of the season--Ramon Martinez or Ivan Rodriguez?" It's time to take these non-walking, powerless Mendozers and move them to the eighth and ninth spots in the order, where they belong. (Brian O'Neill, the "Stats Geek" for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and one of the best baseball columnists writing for a daily newspaper, has a good, more in-depth take on this topic.)

The Angels work around injuries to some of their top talent, the Reds throw an organizational tantrum, and at the end of the day, there's always Jim Bowden, ready to make a move.
