Default Alter The Lineup

Get the Abs to the people swinging the bat well. I've been saying this for years. Also who are we kidding De Aza is not a leadoff hitter.

Beckham 2b
Ramirez SS
De Aza C
Rios RF
Konerko 1b
Dunn Dh
Tank LF
Gillaspie 3b
Flowers C

Thoughts?? Gotta turn this ship around somehow

Good luck getting runs batted in with your 5-9 hitters. Konerko, Rios and Dunn are station to station runners, and the guys hitting after them aren't likely to drive them in. That lineup puts a ton of pressure on 1-4.

I dunno seems like an easy math equation. Lets get the most effective hitters on the team the most opportunities at the plate. I don't buy into this spread them throughout the lineup garbage.

The Sox only have one good hitter, Rios. Switching the lineup around him won't really accomplish much, IMHO.

Yeah, plus, haven't we learned our lesson with Gordon by now? When the guy's hitting, just leave him be. As soon as you start bumping him around the lineup he completely loses his feel for what he's doing.

If he's hitting, where he's hitting, just call it a blessing and figure out how to fix something else.

I was just thinking "About that time of the month for the lineup thread".

I think the lineup should now be arranged in a way that best allows:

Defense to help our young pitchers (PK at first when healthy, etc.)

Showcases our trade chips to maximize trade value (Rios & Ramirez high in the order; Keppinger pinch hitting and playing multiple positions)

Puts our future position players in higher-pressure situations to see if they can handle it (Beckham needs to show he can continue to hit well if moved to the top of the order; Phegley needs to hit in RBI situations, etc.)

But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
