I am really liking what I see out of Xavier Paul so far. The contact ability, insane arm strength, plus speed, and good defense. The question is why not start him in RF? I mean it is not like Garrett Jones or Matt Diaz has done anything to prevent this guy from playing every day. This would also give us 3 absolute burners at the top of the lineup in Tabata, Paul, and Cutch. Not good if you are an opposing pitcher who becomes rattled when speed gets on base. If two of these guys gets on base the double steal becomes a great gamble with the potential to put two runners in scoring position. Plus, if I remember correctly, the last time we had an X-man in RF things worked out ok. Why not try a lineup of:
Tabata, Paul, Cutch, Walker, Overbay, Harrison, Snyder, Cedeno, Pitcher OR
Tabata, Paul, Cutch, Walker, Alvarez, Overbay, Snyder, Cedeno, Pitcher
It certainly can't hurt, right?
