Geez. When do we hire Tony Larussa?
You really need to learn about the effects of line-up construction. Suggesting that Stubbs batting second is "dumb" is actually quite an ignorant comment. It may not be the optimal choice in some people's opinions, however, it's not without merit, nor is it likely to have a significant impact either way. It's not like the team is full of .360 OBP guys that are getting pushed back.
