Jason Heyward batted second in Sunday's game, but that's only because Nate McLouth was out of the lineup.

Ah, but Monday, Heyward is in the two-hole while McLouth is No. 8. 

Will this be a permanent move? Who knows, especially given manager Fredi Gonzalez's insistence that McLouth would stay in the two-hole, but it's promising as it's been clear to many for now that Heyward belongs No. 2 in the order.

Heyward batting No. 2 in lineup

McClouth is terrible. I dunno why the hell we still have him.

Pathetic. He was a one year wonder, maybe half of a second season and then he went back to minor league mediocrity as he was before.

Heyward batting No. 2 in lineup

There's no reason why Heyward should be batting anywhere below 4th in that lineup.
