    How many other teams consistently bat their best hitter fifth or lower in the lineup?

    Dunn isn't the best hitter, IMO.

    Oh, btw, does anyone know if the game is on TV???

    You could make an argument for Griffey, although I don't expect that will last much longer, and it certainly hasn't been the case in the recent past. Hamilton has done pretty well so far, but < 250 PA isn't enough to convince me. Hopefully he comes back up soon, as I'm very interested to see how he plays the rest of the year.

    Looks like the game isn't on today. Probably because it was originally scheduled to be on Fox, but then they switched it to Cards-Dodgers.

    Best power threat....no question.

    Best hitter....no.

    Best overall hitter, I could make a strong case for Hatteberg.

    Hatt's having a pretty good year, but don't forget that he's benefiting from essentially never facing left handers, though. And in any case, he's fine leading off as long as the Reds don't have any better options.

    Here's Hat and Dunn VS right handers. I'm splitting them to show how they perform in similar situations, which, in Hatteberg's case, is essentially the only situation he plays in. He has only 31 PA against left handers.
    Hat - .317/.411/.491/.902
    Dunn - .284/.395/.648/1.043

    Hat has been very good against righties. Dunn has been significantly better, though. Hat has 309 PA and Dunn 301 against righties this year.
