Belisario still sucks.

I really wish Robin would stop batting Abreu fourth instead of third.

Need to get him to the dish as much as you can, was left stranded on deck in the 9th. Game changer. Best hitter on your team hits 3rd.

Robin is clueless.

Just so we can have a L/R/L/R/L/R split the first 2/3 of the order, which, depending on who you believe and how much stock you put into these so-called math nerds, is about the most important thing you can do:

This is written by Rany Jazayerli, who is a doctor and one of the founders of Baseball Prospectus:

Quote:
In modern baseball, NOTHING is more important in lineup construction than left-right balance. Nothing. You can not, can not, CAN NOT bat three lefties in a row, or four righties in a row, because you will be eaten alive by second-tier specialist relievers in the middle innings. The Royals’ current lineup goes L-R-L-R-L-R-L-R-R, and they literally can’t do better than that.

Quintana was a stud tonight also.

Without the need of the stupid win stat, this guy more and more shows that he's a keeper.

Solid #3 for years to come.

Sale, Rodon, and Quintana will be pretty solid 1-2-3 for the future.

I'm sure we will want to break them up with a RH starter in there, but I'm all for just pitching the best you have, even if I have to run 5 LH starters out there.

Belisario was almost unhittable in 12 games as a setup guy. In 13 games being used as a closer he has a 9.00 ERA and has been a disaster. Yes, the whole bullpen sucks, but please try anyone else, maybe Guerra next.

So because of this theory you would keep your best hitter from hitting 3rd?

I say you plug Abreu 3rd and then follow this RH/LF pattern if you want.

But don't move that guy from the 3 hole.

You are free to believe and think what you like, just noting that "clueless" Robin is employing a strategy that is advocated by one of the best and most respected baseball writers and thinkers currently on the planet.

Maybe you just don't know as much as you think you do.

Sadly the only thing I know is that the best hitter on every team always hits 3rd.

Robin must subscribe to the theory that a better pop is more important than all-around hitting.

Ah, I see you write that like it is etched in stone... Sorry...

It's OK, though, there was a time when every educated man on the planet knew the Earth was the center of the universe.

You keep posting the same dumb bull ****. It reads optimizing your lineup. This line up has more holes than swiss cheese and there is nothing optimal about it. Competent ML hitters, yes I subscribe to this theory. But it's not even close.
