It's Gregory Polanco day!
Jon Singleton and Oscar Taveras spoiled us by homering in their major-league debuts, which Polanco to this point hasn't done, but he has gotten his first hit out of the way, singling off Travis Wood (a lefty, no less) in the third inning. You have to like Clint Hurdle's decision to bat him second in the lineup. You can bet pitchers will challenge him with the reigning NL MVP due up after him.
As you can imagine, we talked plenty about Polanco and our expectations for him on Tuesday's Fantasy Baseball Today. We also reconsidered Lonnie Chisenhall's value following his breakthrough three-homer game Monday. Al Melchior and I are pretty divided on that one.
