5/6 Lineup & Ramirez

Aramis Ramirez was back in the fifth spot on Thursday, one day after being dropped to sixth. Derrek Lee said after Wednesday’s game that it shouldn’t matter where you hit. Lou Piniella agreed.

“There’s too much made out of it,” Piniella said of the lineup positions. “The guys in the front part of the lineup get up one more time than the guys in the back part. That’s the big difference. … Outside of that, once the game starts, it doesn’t matter. You’re going to lead off some innings, hit second some innings. it doesn’t make any difference.”

Here’s the lineup vs. lefty Brian Burnes:

SS Theriot

CF Byrd

1B Lee

RF Nady

3B Ramirez

LF Soriano

C Soto

2B Baker

P Wells

I think Ramirez at that point the season should be moved down the lineup,but on the other hand continous movement of the lineup, lefts and rightys back and forth, in one day and out the next has not worked,everyone is confused ,and no production.
