This. I'm pretty sure that Ramirez is best in the 2-hole, if only because he gets a ton more fastballs to hit. Sure, the guy can't bunt to save his life, but he makes contact and seems to be able to hit the ball to the right side. I dunno why people rag on him so much for hitting in the 2-hole, honestly.
I will say that the lack of power IS a bit concerning, but as long as he's hitting and driving in runs, that's really all I care about.
