Re: 6/13/2013 Redlegs v. Cub paws
Man, I know intellectually that it doesn't matter all that much in any given game, but in my gut it absolutely kills me to see our worst hitter batting 2nd.
Why not stack lefties? Are we really letting James Russel dictate our lineup? This is a tough pitcher and I hate the idea that we're taking so little advantage of our best hitter's opportunities.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
