These poll results are far less scientific than when Mr. Wizard would cook a hot dog by running an electric current through it. But, it's almost as interesting to see.

It would appear that readers don't think Derek Jeter's .316 batting average -- .398 to lead off a game -- isn't good enough. Here are the poll results, based on the overwhelmingly not-so-huge sample size of 246 total votes.

Poll question: Where should Ichiro bat in the Yankees' lineup?

33% -- Leadoff

25% -- Ninth

16% -- Second

  9% -- Seventh

  9% -- Eight

  8% -- Third-Sixth
