Seattle Mariners: The effect of the top of the order

Austin Jackson, Seth Smith, and Justin Ruggiano have been the primary 1-2 hitters in the Seattle Mariners lineup. Jackson usually starts in center field, and while he primarily hits leadoff, he’s also been hitting from the #2 spot.

Detroit Tigers: who is most likely to flop?

Last week, I looked at three x-factors for the 2014 Detroit Tigers. Now, it’s time to examine the likely 25-man roster and determine three players that have the biggest potential to flop in 2014.
