Re: 8/5/2011 Reds at Cubbies Matinee
If I could have a convo with Dusty this is how I think it would go:
Me: Why is Jansih hitting second?
Dusty: He handles the bat well and is a good guy to have after Stubbs.
Me: But Stubbs doesn't get on base.
Dusty: Have you seen him run? The guy has the best wheels in the game.
Me: Yes, I know. But he doesn't get on base.
Dusty: I am not sure how that is relevant.
Me: You do realize you have a guy leading off who has some power but doesn't get on base followed by the worst hitter in MLB?
Dusty: But Stubbs is fast and Janish handles the bat well.
Me: Yes, we've established that. But do you not see the fallacy in doing that considering the other factors you seem to ignore?
Dusty: Stubbs is fast and Janish handles the bat well.
