After the Braves acquired Dan Uggla from the Marlins a few weeks ago, I was as happy as any other Braves fan. Frank Wren had finally added the right-handed power bat that had eluded us since Andruw Jones' departure. He would make a perfect cleanup hitter for us. But then I started wondering: who should bat third in the lineup? It is generally assumed that Chipper will be back next year, but I am not so sure he is still capable of the production that
he might think he is capable of. Personally, I think that Chipper should be dropped in the order in favor of Brian McCann. Assuming we do not add a leadoff center fielder, this is the lineup I would prefer:
