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.)
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
