quote: It says a lot that whenever we have a guy from the bench playing he bats first and our normal lead off guy bats 8th.
I mean, either Fredi is convinced lead off is the least important spot in the lineup or he is confused.
Well, you gotta get a guy like Rev some ABs when you call him up and the best way to do that is to get him the first AB of the game. He's just too good of a hitter to not have out there when you want to give Danny a day off. And then you can't really move anyone else in the order, so you kinda have to bat Simmons 8th.
