Losing a lot more strikeouts and gaining someone you can hit and run with. And Lombo is a much better hitter against righties.

I gotta support this - it's usually a great idea to hit and run with your number 8 hitter in an NL lineup.

Oh wait...

Otherwise I don't know if you wanted to put Lombardozzi in the 2-hole, which would prioritize the at bats of an inferior hitter to everyone batting behind him, all for the sake of having a successful hit and run every other series.

No, the addition of Span should make everything right in this lineup. Even if you want to move Espinosa to 8th and bat the C 7th, he's a great fit for the 8th spot in an NL lineup. Knock 'em in or strikeout and let the pitcher pitch another inning.
