personally, i think the more interesting scenario would be to bat ryan howard in the 2 hole. he’s been in a funk for a couple of years, but even so, his stats compare favorably to the average 2-hole hitter (.244/.307/.445…ugh…for howard over the last two years v. .262/.318/.392 for the average NL hitter batting 2nd in 2013), and that’s before considering that he’d see more fastballs in the 2 hole and bat much less often with two outs.
combining the two ideas:
and just to talk a bit about jimmy rollins in the 6-hole, i think that’s ideal for a number of reasons. 1, it lets jimmy be jimmy at the bat. he can swing for the fences to his hearts content and noone will get on him for not working the count or popping up on the first pitch. and 2, it lets him be as aggressive as he wants when he actually gets on base, because who the hell cares if he takes the bat out of ben revere’s hands.
