2018 FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: AMED ROSARIO BATTING NINTH OPENING DAY

The New York Mets have taken a page out of the Tony LaRussa playbook as new manager Mickey Callaway will bat top shortstop prospect Amed Rosario ninth for the team's Opening Day game versus the St. Louis Cardinals and in the process will hit pitcher Noah Syndegaard eighth.  The bigger news here is that Rosario is in a dead spot as a bottom of the order hitter in a National League lineup and so at least for now, his 2018 fantasy baseball outlook is handicapped quite a bit since he won't be protected well and have his total plate appearances curbed.  While we are bullish on Rosario long-term, we said from the beginning he may not pop until the second half or even 2019 given the current lack of plate discipline and lineup issue.
