Re: Consistency at the top of the lineup
Disagree. With Cozart batting second, Votto leads off too many times. Cozart has a tendency when hitting that high in the lineup to making the last out of an inning too many times. It leaves runners stranded and leaves Joey in the on deck circle. I don't know where to look for this stat, but I'd love to see a comparison of the number of times Joey has led off an inning compared to the rest of the #3 hitters in the league. I would bet it is much higher than most.
