Dusty likes X Paul against hard throwing fastball pitchers. He previously used Lutz sometimes against RHP specializing in breaking or off speed stuff.
Maybe Dusty feels Lynn is the wrong kind of pitcher for Paul, but he can't use the AA guy against the Cards in a big game. Ergo, Robinson, the switch hitter.
Glad to see Cozsrt at seven and Hanigan eight. Have to be patient hitting eighth, which Ryan is and Zack isn't. Seventh is more of a swing away spot, which suits Cozart.
