    Why do you put the .700 OPS in the fourth spot instead of the 1.000 OPS?

    I just don't get it. They both hit RH.

    There are a lot more considerations than just numbers. Frankly, though, statistically the difference of swapping them is probably closer to being negligible than worth worrying about.

    Folks on here have been round and round on the importance of lineups to run production. I would always argue that if there is any gain to be had, it should be taken. Chances are we're talking 2-3 wins per year with an optimized lineup, and that can be important in a Wild Card battle.

    But anyway...

    I understand that this is just one game and there are egos and personalities involved. So maybe that's the reason.

    Because otherwise, I don't see why you'd want a weaker hitter getting more plate appearances in any game.

    Don't say Tom Browning and broken in the same sentence. Bad memories.

    If I was in San Diego right now, I'd be at the beach most of the day.

    No need for you to scare the kids. Just go to the baseball game (and keep your shirt on!).

    The Reds have spent the better part of the last five years with the teams worse hitters at or near the top of the lineup. As a fan I'm just happy that we finally have a coach that knows where those guys belong.

    Never thought that was ever possible by any team any month of any year.

    I have found that west coast start times tend to lead to more adult beverages.
