    I do. I just don't think Dozier's rookie campaign is going to mean much to his long-term abilities at any position. Granted he wasn't very good in 2012. But he was excellent in 2013 (or at least the second half), he looked so much more relaxed, he didn't take his at bats into the field, and knew that he belonged. That will work wonders for you, whether you're at 2B or SS.

    In any case, I think it might happen, not necessarily because of Rosario being better than Dozier but because Florimon's bat might open up a spot at short.

    That number three guy goes five and a third, gives up a hit, a walk, and strikes out seven in the AFL on Friday.

    Actually 5 and 2/3- pretty clean score sheet- and almost a 2 to 1 ratio on strikes to balls, very encouraging while hitting his typical high velocity numbers. (AJ Acther also pitched 1 and 1/3 innings of scoreless relief with one K.)

    I like the lineup, but I think Arcia is going to end up getting a lot of time at DH when it's all said and done.

    Dozier might also get another shot at SS to open up a spot for Rosario.

    Sano's elbow situation also might end up precluding him from being anything other than 1B/DH over the mid-term especially if he doesn't respond to rehab and has to undergo surgery.

    UCL injuries for hitters are not the ordeal that they are for pitchers. Not to mention that it was just a strain. I think this is a situation where resting it is probably the right choice.

    Absolutely correct.

    Like this lineup!

    I'm glad everybody is giving Dozier his due and keeping him as our 2b!
