    I hate it too, when the team's leading RBI guy bats cleanup.

    Well, at the risk of defending Narron, I'm sure he's kept Dunn out of the 4 hole because of his performance last year in that spot. In 2006, AD had 209 PA, 2nd only to the 222 he had in the 5th spot, and here is his line:

    .189/.340/.408/.748

    This year, Narron's kept him mainly in either the 2nd or 6th spot, where he's done well. Last year, his numbers in those spots:

    (2nd): 144 PA, .317/.417/.593/1.010
    (6th): 17 PA, .308/.438/1.000/1.438

    So, believe it or not, there seems to be a method to Narron's madness.

    17 at bats is so small of a sample size that I dont even count it. If we can all find these numbers why isnt Dunn batting 2nd for a manager whos suppose to be a "baseball guy"?

    Coming into todays game (5/28) Dunn was hitting .195 with runners in scoring position. Including 18 K's in 41 AB's. The numbers worsen when there are RISP with 2 outs and his BA drops to .143.

    By setting up the lineup in a traditional manner (ie: 4th hitter has the majority of chances with RISP) I am not a fan of Dunn hitting 4. In 54 AB's in the 6-hole he is hitting .278 with 13 RBI's.

    Dunn's also doing very well in the 6 spot this year: .278/.391/.759/1.150

    And Narron has batted Dunn 2nd quite a few times this year. But it's tough to keep him there when he goes into one of his nasty slumps.
