Re: A fun little bit of research
I think this shows that Dusty almost always bats the CF leadoff. But it also shows that Dusty always batting the SS second is an urban legend. He bats low SLG guys who can bunt. I added it up last year, and over his managerial career, Dusty has batted the SS second around 25% of the time.
Hopefully this will end the unfunny and untrue "SS bats second, Dude," jokes.
