BASEBALL: DAVID PINTO WIGS OUT

David Pinto's had a good week, interviewing Bill James and getting a link from Rob Neyer. But I think Pinto's getting carried away with Ty Wigginton, suggesting he should bat second. Wigginton's shown some real promise with the bat -- if he can hold up in the field (the jury's still out on that one), Wigginton should hit enough to plug the third base hole. He's a somewhat similar player to Shea Hillenbrand, maybe a bit less power but I think Wigginton is likely to get on base more. But let's be realistic: Wigginton had a .324 OBP in AA in 2000 and a .325 OBP in AAA in 2001. I'd still rather take my chances with Roger Cedeno at the top of the order, and leave Wigginton to hit sixth.
