Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has finally put Jason Heyward in the number two spot in the batting order. Actually, this is a smart way for Fredi to make the transition -- a day after a doubleheader sweep of the Mets. This way it doesn't smack of desperation. Obviously it's a Sunday lineup, with several regulars getting days off, so we'll have to see what the lineup is like tomorrow in LA.
