The Art of Constructing a Baseball Lineup

Dave Branda, Operation Sports' Editorals Editor gives his opinion on how to construct the best possible baseball lineup. Check out the article here.

Quote:
"Putting together a lineup in baseball is really much more of an art than a science, with many baseball insiders having very different ideas about how to construct the perfect lineup."

I'm gonna have to print this out! Makes me realize what the cubs are doing wrong. They are trying to make guys fit where they really aren't designed for.

Kind of funny...this year LaRussa is going to bat his pitchers 8th. In hopes that Pujols will have a few more RBI opportunities later in the games.

Great article! You know - much of this actually applies to slowpitch softball as well (only you have 10 hitters instead of 9).

Everything I've read says that batting order actually matters very little...if you assume the pitcher bats 9th than the difference between the optimal lineup and worst lineup possible is just 6%, and that required some really ridiculous stuff in the worst order.

It's much more important what players the manager chooses to have bat, not the order they hit in, although ideas like alternating lefties/righties and keeping the real slow players with double play potential separate have merit.

I applaud the effort of writing articles, but you guys need to do a much better job editing if you are going to do this. In the third paragraph it is "here" not "hear" and in the 5th paragraph it is "two", not "to". I haven't read the rest of the article yet.

Many won't care, but it really looks bad to be "published" with these blatant errors. If it was a forum post I wouldn't even comment.

Just my $.02....again I applaud the effort. I'll finish the article now...
