Yep. And what it seemed like was for most years, the 1st or the 2nd batter wasn't really a bad choice as far as OBP goes. It would be a rare year when they both were good choices though.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
