Power? Who needs power? Certainly not Che-Hsuan Lin, it seems, who has slotted into the #13 spot despite a .343 slugging percentage last year. How does he manage that? By doing everything else right.

At the moment, Lin is busy becoming a parody of himself in spring training, with a .000/.375/.000 line to date. Now I'm not saying I don't love a good .375 OBP. That's gold right there. But man, he could at least try to put the ball in play from time to time to take advantage of that speed.

So, we actually managed to get Lin in with limited campaigning this time around. Whatever shall we do next?
