Saturday lineups from GABP

Theriot is back in there. Tarp is currently out, but I don’t see any rain falling.

1. Theriot SS
2. Rasmus CF
3. Pujols 1B
4. Holliday LF
5. Berkman RF
6. Molina C
7. Descalso 3B
8. Greene 2B
9. McClellan P

1. Stubbs CF
2. Janish SS
3. Votto 1B
4. Phillips 2B
5. Bruce RF
6. Rolen 3B
7. Gomes LF
8. Hernandez C
9. Cueto P



Molina should be batting 8th !!!!

Molina’s at 289/331/421. Greene is at 234/345/340. Descalso is at 233/299/360.

Moreover, it’s not ideal to have a really slow player in front of the pitcher, because you make it much more difficult to sacrifice.

So I don’t see any argument as to why Molina should be 8th in this lineup. Why do you think he should be?


Isn’t the pitcher supposed to hit 8th? (I thought the debate could use a little TLR snark.)
