Re: Can anyone tell me the advantage of breaking up the lefty's in the lineup?
Well if you have 3 lefties back to back to back, the opposing manger can bring in one lefty specialist for all 3 batters...if you break them up, then the manager had to decide what to do about the righty....maybe they have to use 2 extra pitchers now...
That's the thought process, I guess, but to me it sounds more like a manager outmanaging himself.....the opposing manager isn't going to panic because there's a righty breaking up the lefties. He'll simply bring in a different reliever and save the specialist for a different situation...
Just put your best hitters in the best places for them to have success. If that means Griffey, Dunn, Hamilton...then so be it.
