Wil Myers

I think Wil Myers has shown some good things in the first week, but I’m just not sold on him in the lead-off role.  Myers approach hasn’t really seemed to change, and he is still ranked towards the bottom of the team in on base percentage.

Of course time will tell, but I think sliding Alexi Amarista into the lead-off and dropping Myers further down could help him really find his swing.  This guy has proven that he is a dangerous hitter, but the Padres shouldn’t expect him to be something that he is not – a lead-off hitter.
