    Best Lineup projector

    In an article on HardBallTimes the author has a short section about using projected stats and some complicated analysis to create the optimal lineup. Assuming the projections are right of course, here's what it put out for the Reds (it doesn't have pitchers and requires 9 players so I used Womack as a proxy for our pitcher).


    1. Freel
    2. Kearns
    3. Dunn
    4. Griffey
    5. Pena
    6. Encarnacion
    7. Lopez
    8. Larue
    9. Womack

    I like it! If you take Freel out and add in another "pitcher" Lopez moves to 1, LaRue to 7, and the new "pitcher" moves to 8. In other words, it likes Kearns batting 2nd (as do I) and Womack is the worst hitter in baseball.
