Let’s talk about batting orders

You know something I have never seen or come across in my 22 years of life? A baseball fan who dislikes talking about batting orders. I’m pretty sure those are like unicorns: nobody’s ever seen one, and they probably don’t exist anyway. Who should lead off? Who bats third? Why is the lineup your team’s manager turned in today stupid? These are questions we’ve all asked and answered before, and for this week’s Rockpile, the lineup is going to be the main topic. The idea for this whole thing came to me when I was recently reminded on Twitter that the Tampa Bay Rays had 158 different lineups in 162 games.
