2. It's the key as to what's wrong with this team. Not having enough left handed hitters is a root problem. How you construct the batting order- pretty small potatoes.
Of course, it's a huge issue.
And I've given you props for repeatedly acknowledging it.
But Valdez over Cozart (and in the 2-hole no less), and Cairo over Frazier (for whatever reason) were obviously likely to kill the offense today, against a good starter.
Lineup construction matters. I'd bet Votto concurs.
