In this post-trade era, with all the complaining about Narron's lineups (and I agree), what would your ideal lineup be?
Mine would look something like this:
1B Hatteberg (and sometimes Aurillia)
On days when Freel sits and either Aurillia, Clayton or Castro play (2B or SS), I would swap them with Denorfia in the order, allowing Deno to see some decent pitches with someone other than the pitcher batting behind him. For the time being, however, he does look overmatched, and a team in the midst of a playoff hunt can't afford that out of their leadoff hitter. Dunn should bat 3rd ahead of Griff in the cleanup spot with his higher OBP, and I'd like to see Freel and Phillips' speed at the top of the order like when it used to be Freel and FeLo. I like EdE in the six hole, hitting behind Hatteberg and his high OBP. Thoughts?
