Pearson has been incredibly impressive. The poise on this young cat is unreal.

Yea, I dont think Robles batting 9th really matters so much with no pitchers batting this year.
In AL lineups, the 9 hitter is often pretty strong. Gardner did it for the NYY,  I think Billy Mueller led the AL in avg. the year he won the batting title.

CF Robles
RF Eaton
SS Turner
LF Soto
1B Kendrick
DH Thames
2B Castro
C Suzuki
3B Kieboom

Look Dad, a major league lineup!

Where should your best hitters bat? One school of thought is to put your best hitter at the top of the order because he'll get more at-bats that way over the course of the season. Your second best hitter bats second. And so on down the order. Here are the average plate appearances per lineup position based on the 2006 MLB season:

Lineup Position   Plate Appearances
1   767
2   749
3   732
4   714
5   697
6   680
7   661
8   643
9   625
As you can see, each higher spot in the order means 15 to 20 or more plate appearances over the course of the season.

But let's look at another element. How often does each lineup position come up with men on base?

Lineup Position   Number of Times With Men on Base
1   259
2   323
3   351
4   363
5   333
6   314
7   304
8   293
9   288
The number four position has the most over the course of a season. In fact, it's 104 times more than the leadoff position, quite a significant difference. The third spot in the order is not far behind.

What does this tell me? Your best hitters should bat in the number three and number four spots in the order. Put the speedier (and/or higher on-base) of the two in the number three slot. Follow that up with your next best on-base guys in the number one and two spots. Five through eight (or nine)? Go with the best to worst with the remaining players.

maybe better as its own thread but idk :shrug:

Uh .. . That's probably one fewer plate appearance a game

Just get him up the lineup. No reason for him to be batting behind Stevenson right now with a DH. Especially with our currently unproductive lineup

But those are typically strong lineups up and down 1-9, which we do not currently boast.

Switching it up tonight and watching the Toronto broadcast. Nice professional presentation, Dan Shulman is a familiar voice.

Yes. If we don't have some success in the gold tops soon, they might have to be dumped. I hope they stick around, they are a sharp look. But nothing can beat the magic of the blue tops...

The Blue Jays have Dan Shulman and we're stuck with this annoying crew?
