Baker is not going to mess with that for the sake of a little more offense. Can't say I disagree.
Completely agree. The Frazier-Bruce-Ludwick lineup would make us worse at all 3 OF spots all at once. That shouldn't even be considered. I'm also not sure why everyone thinks it's such a terrible thing that we have a good hitter on the bench for the playoffs. Defense is huge in these close games and so is pinch hitting.
