Re: Rational Reds Outlook
I this thread sarcasm?
everyone is happy with the lineup?! I didn´t found a single user who liked it the way it is every day!
there are multiple thread (especially few weeks ago) with nothing but lineup talk...
I would bat votto 2nd aswell and would make some other changes aswell (f.ex. rocco wouldn´t be batting 8 like he should in your lineup...)
dusty has a different philosophy and thinks that lefty/righty is very important, therefore he don´t want to bat lefty´s back to back (bruce should hit cleanup),
=> he wouldn´t like choo hitting infront of votto => votto will never hit 2nd with choo in the leadoff spot...
he often used choo, cozart, votto, bp, bruce because of the lefty/righty situation and because he does like to bunt the leadoff guy over... cozart is one of our faster players and one of our best bunters => in dusty´s mind a good guy in the #2 spot...
