I want the three best offensive players on the team coming up in the first inning. Right now that's Choo, Bruce, and Votto.
There's a lot I like about it. (Jay has never been too prone to DPs ---even with no adjustments in his approach).
I still would try Choo-BP-Votto-Bruce to start with but would consider switching to your preferred order a very viable option if BP proved disappointing in the role.
Unfortunately Dusty will never try either because he would suffer an aneurysm if he put 2 (or 3!) lefties in a row.
