J.J. Hardy seems like a for sure out every-time he comes to the plate. Despite the fact that he has been batting a little better now that Kendall was moved to the 8 spot, do you think he will drastically improve his offense like last year... or is this the real J.J.?
Just throwing it out there, would it be insane to move Hall to shortstop and have Russell Branyan play third??
"J.J. Hardy had trouble producing runs in the No. 7 spot in the lineup when the pitcher was batting eighth, hitting just .146 with runners in scoring position. For the second consecutive game, C Jason Kendall was in the eight spot and Hardy took advantage of that protection to go 3-for-4 with two RBIs in a 3-2 victory over Atlanta."
