  • Kenny Williams Jr

    Kenny has been a VERY pleasant surprise as of late. I think I read it here on SN or heard Terry comment that it is nice to have three Centerfielders in the outfield!!!

    Has Kenny earned a shot at trying the lead off spot especially since Ryan Jones has cooled off a little or do we leave him alone and not mess with success?

    Lead off? Ryan is hitting in the 2 hole, with Dirks in the lead off spot. Maybe he could take over the 2 hole, though.

      I know. I was thinking about moving Kenny to leadoff and Dirks back to 2nd and have Jones bat 9th.

        Andy has done a good job of "setting the table" with 13 walks, which is twice as many as anyone else, and a .492 on-base percentage. I leave him in the leadoff spot. I would not be opposed to seeing Kenny swap places with Ryan. I like Ryan in the two-hole because I consider him an exceptional baserunner. It's not all about speed, it's something more intangible. But Ryan needs to get his average, or at least his on-base percentage, up a little higher if he's to stay in the 2-hole.

          I think having Kenny in the second lead off spot is great leave him in the nine hole.

            Something else to consider is that this is the first real success Kenny has had in his college career. I'm not saying he couldn't handle hitting in the 2-hole, but I am saying Kenny is like a freshman in many ways. You could count the number of games he'd played in coming into this season on two hands. There is always some risk in moving a guy from a place he's having success.

              Kenny has been a great surprise. I thought Bascue might get a shot at DH today. I wonder if he is in Genes doghouse. He is a player who really hasnt gotten a real shot. It seams anytime he doesnt get a hit in a game he sets the bench for a while. He only got 39 chances last year and only 15 this year.

                I too am surprised we haven't seen Bret this week. He is an outstanding outfielder and goes to the plate with an idea of what he wants to do. Kenny probably got the start against a right-hander, had success, and now may be in left field to stay.

                    That's what baseball is all about. Creating your own opportunities and taking advantage of them.

                      I agree Kenny is probably there to stay. Know one has done very good in the DH spot. Thought Bascue might be a good fit there.

                        Nevermind! Ryan Jones is just fine in the 2 hole in my opinion. :yes:

                          Kenny is locked in at the left field and nine hole hitter. What a find.
