    Choo
    Votto
    Phillips
    Bruce
    Frazier
    Heisey
    Cozart
    Pitcher
    Hanigan

    It takes better advantage of Choo and Votto's skills, make perfect use of Hanigans OBP and allows Heisey and Cozarts power to clear baserunners ahead of the pitcher. This lineup is made for the pitcher to bat 8th.

    But it is just wayyyy to out of the box for Dusty.

    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.

    There has to be someone put in the two slot that Dusty won't sac bunt with.

    I'd like to say he wouldn't do it with Bruce, but Votto may well be the only one. Be nice to not have the bat taken out of his hands too often.

    I would offer again that Votto isn't a typical left-handed hitter in that he doesn't have an extreme platoon split:

    Career wOBA:
    .392 vs. LHP
    .422 vs. RHP

    So bat him second.

    Sidebar: I'm actually hard-pressed to find any split our hitting situation where Votto is appreciably worse than a mortal hitter.
