What's wrong with a challenge for the kid?Originally Posted by M2
Of course on a macro level Carpenter's got righties figured out--yes. But when a pitcher doesn't know a hitter's tendencies, I still believe, flaky as it may seem, that on a micro level sometimes hitters can have an edge. Sure it's a long shot, the stats say don't do it, but occasionally bucking trends lends a dynamism to a lineup that might otherwise not be there. I wouldn't recommend this lineup frequently with a guy like Carpenter on the mound, but on occasion quirks have been known to pay off.
