Re: If Dusty Played The Best Hitters ...
But the defense goes hand in hand with the pitching. And adding a poor defensive player (like you propose, in giving a fourth OF an unfamiliar spot at 1b) so that he may hit better is like robbing Peter to maybe pay Paul.
No thank you to business as usual.
This plan-- Jocketty's plan (as you surmised)--is good pitching, good defense, and catch-as-catch-can offense.
So far this season, despite the injuries, it's worked pretty well.
