Batting order scenarios?
Manager Fredi Gonzalez would like to leave at least some parts of the batting order up to the imagination of the media.
Basically, he confirmed that Hanley Ramirez will bat third, as expected. That means Cameron Maybin leads off and John Baker is the likely No. 2 hitter, then Hanley, and probably Jorge Cantu, Dan Uggla, Jeremy Hermida, Cody Ross and Gaby Sanchez.
Hermida and Ross could flip-flop depending on the pitcher.
That is my projected batting order. I welcome what batting order the readers think.
