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.)
