Can we be done with the Bourjos at the leadoff experiment?


Recommended Posts

Still not a fan of Bourjos leading off, he doesn't get on base enough and his offensive game is based more around slugging (surprisingly). Of course there isn't any competition on this team IMO, everyone else is just a hacker, or not a good hitter.


If Bourjos can hit better than we all expect than I'm cool with it.

I think it would be better to wait for a while to declare a winner in this debate.  Petey will be good enough with the bat to make his defense worth it.  That is all I expect from him.  Personally, while he's doing okay I would prefer him at the bottom of the order.

lol of course he goes 3-4 today with 0 K's and 3 rbi's, and is the first person you see at AngelsBaseball.com


Give the guy a break. He's gonna K cause he's got some pop. And he made a beautiful bunt today. How can you hate that?


Let him get a chance to be a spark plug at the top of the line up. Seems like he benefits from having Trout behind him. TBH I'd rather have him up there than Aybar or Callaspo. He's getting the opportunity to hit up there while those guys are hurt. Give him a chance to show what he can do.


He deserves a solid month or two in the 1 spot before people start jumping the gun and saying he doesn't belong there. He loves to play and is fun to watch! 


Also, I LOVED that 1st to 3rd attempt by Bourjos even though he got thrown out. That had to be a perfect throw to get him and it was. I hope it doesn't detour him from pushing the envelope in the future.
