Recently, there's been talking going on that Grady Sizemore of the Indians is going to bat 2nd in the lineup. It's going to happen, but I just don't see how this will affect the lineup. Even though Sizemore scores a lot of runs, Cabrera will be fine in the leadoff spot. Sizemore's numbers have been dropping over the past couple of years, too. So he shouldn't be a leadoff hitter, especially not with a .248 average.
