What do you think of Robles leading off and Trea batting third? I think I like it. It makes the top four guys pretty impressive.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Sounds good to me, although as long as as the better hitters are at the top I'm not sure if the exact order matters. I'm not a fan of having a lead off type guy batting ninth.

That's a well-established AL strategy, for the innings when you hve 9-1-2 coming up. It's considered a way to make the lineup flow and keep the offense going.

Generally I'd put the best hitters at the top, but in Robles' case he isn't hitting that great so having him in the ninth spot makes sense, he's hidden at the bottom of the order where he'll get the fewest number of plate appearances and in case he does get on he's got speed to get around the bases when the stronger hitters come up.
