From John Fay:
Jay Bruce leading off? Jay Bruce hitting fourth?
Dusty Baker talked about both possibilities this morning.
“I’d rather not have two lefties in a row,” Baker said. “Unless you have lefties like (Ryan) Howard and (Chase) Utley who don’t have as much trouble hitting lefties. If you’re learning to hit lefties, they can bring in one lefty to take care of two guys. I’d rather split them up. Eventually they might. Jay is getting better at hitting lefties.
Ryan Howard vs LHP in 2010: .264/.333/.492
Jay Bruce vs LHP in 2010: .277/.352/.547
Don't let facts get in the way of a good argument Dusty.....
He also talks about Bruce batting leadoff. Go read the article. My brain hurts.
