if PM thinks Laird can hit .300 as a frosh, is that saying Laird may start?
after listening to the interview, it's my opinion that Laird gets it. He mentioned Stevenson and Mcmullen as being inconsistent but I dont think he mentioned anything like that with Laird.
PM said if a groundball hits the ground 3 times, Laird will get a singe out of it. Katz mentioned in an interviews I heard about 2 months ago, that everytime Laird hits a groundball to short he's safe at first. The kid must just slap the ball and haul ass.
I could see him leading off and Scaimbra at the 2, because PM said Chris has done a really good job of using all fields and not being a pull hitter like he was as a fresh and that's something that's good for a 2 hole hitter. I dont think it makes sense to put a ground ball hitter like Laird seems to be at #2, that's a fielders choice waiting to happen if the leadoff gets a single. Just a guess though.
