Escobar or K.J. likely to lead off
Manager Bobby Cox isn’t certain who will hit first and second in front of Chipper Jones and Mark Teixeira, but it sounds as if he’s leaning toward Yunel Escobar and Kelly Johnson.
Chipper wants Kotsay to hit second for reasons of “contact”. This is foolish, of course, but Kotsay’s a veteran.
