A combined complete game between Olson and Alexander tonight would do some wonders for the bullpen.

Torkelson has really had a successful time since being moved to the 2nd spot in the batting order.  I don't know that there's anything to it, but hopefully it isn't just blip.

With McKinstry slumping lately, maybe a top of the order of Greene, Torkelson, and Carpenter is in order once Greene returns?

I'd like to see that batting order come to fruition!

Thst makes sense because the center fielder has to lead off.  You can't have the first baseman bat second though. He bats cleanup. The second spot is for a gritty second baseman who doesn't hit much, but has good bunting skills.

Correct, and it doesn't matter if the second baseman has an OBP below .300 because he makes up for it with moxie and grit.  He's got a great baseball name too, something like Donny Day, not a doofus name like Spencer.

No not anymore it’s the five spot for the gritty low everything hitter. Just ask Hinch. 

THAT'S WHY he's nOT a good ManaGer.

He needs to tell them to  play harder and not swing   at balls out ofthe zone

I've got to miss tonight's game.

My wife and I are taking our three year old granddaughter to Marquette to watch our five year old granddaughter play soccer.

Gotta miss my seven year old grandsons Little League game as well.

How about them Tigers🤗

Everybody knows that your optimal lineup is CF, 2B, 1B/DH, DH/1B, RF, 3B, LF, SS/C, C/SS. You have your speedster leading off, followed by the gritty 2B that "knows how to handle the bat" followed by the big sluggers, your catcher bats at the bottom cause his only real job is "calling a good game" along with the light hitting SS who while not having much pop "makes the pitchers work" during his ABs and like the CF is a terror on the base paths.

Yes this is all correct.
