KW [Kenny Williams] might still be after another LH bat. He’s not sure if he’s got enough “thump” in lineup. ” If JD [Jermaine Dye] was lefty, he’d be here.”
”We can create more runs,” Guillen said. ”In the past, yeah, we could score 10, but all of a sudden, when we need to score one, we can’t. That’s why our philosophy changed.
”We have a bunch of guys in the lineup who can hit 20-plus home runs. I would rather have 10 guys hit 20 home runs than have one guy hit 50. How many times did we have men on second base and we couldn’t score a run when we needed it? If everybody contributes — not have a super year, but have the year they are supposed to have — then this ballclub should be fine offensively.”
No doubt, Guillen believes that. But Williams seems to prefer a big bopper in the middle of the lineup.
