The problem is not where to hit the 9 guys in the lineup. It is that we are hitting those 9 guys in the lineup. Outside Rios and Connor, they all suck. When that happens, you can shape the pile of **** any way you want, but it still is going to wreak like ****.
Well, a lot of research and analysis has suggested that those "lineup strategieis that have worked for years" aren't
actually optimal for scoring runs.
