Leadoff hitter/top of batting order
There is a pretty big dropoff in OB% & BA from top 3 to rest (excluding Romero who needs more AB's).

LINK

Why aren't these 3 guys hitting 1-2-3?
Freeman
Duplantis
Fraley

Duplantis, Freeman, Fraley, followed by the Jordan's is my ideal line up. Robertson batting 9th.

Not because K Rob can't hit, but he would serve as a second leadoff off guy in that spot.

re: Leadoff hitter/top of batting order
K rob is the best lead off hitter we have. Look at obp and strike outs per plate appearance

re: Leadoff hitter/top of batting order
Duplantis needs to be in the 2 hole

Freeman needs to stay at the bottom because he sees mostly fastballs. He can't hit off speed pitching

OPS = On Base % + Slg %
PA/K = Plate Appearances per Strikeout
XBH = Extra base hits
BABAIP = Batting Average On Ball In Play
GPA = Gross Production Average; a formula with weighted values for OB% and SLG%
ISO = SLG% - BA = a.k.a. Isolated or raw power

This is actually a good point that I didn't think of.

Kramer is leading the team at 40.0

He also works the pitcher, am I right?

He hit $72 worth of foul balls Wed at Nicholls. 12 X $6/ball.

No, you're absolutely right. I think it was Sacramento st that was feeding him curveballs and he couldn't touch them.

You're paying too much for balls...

I know a guy down on Plank Rd. who will give you some balls much cheaper!
