Mike Sielski may be on to something.Â Reyes is best leading off.Â Beltran’s high OBP is ideal for hitting behind Reyes.Â Â Pagan has been Mr. Clutch this year (not to be confused with Mr. Man-Up).Â Wright is one of the league leaders in RBIs.Â Davis splits up the righties and is on pace for 24 moon-smackers.Â Bay is a better hitter than Castillo or any of the catchers (Plus, don’t you think his pulling power is conducive to Citi Field?)Â Castillo gets on base (with caution).Â Â Thole’s been hitting better but Barajas calls a better game.Â What do you think?
