How much of a difference would it make to flip Calhoun and Trout?


Recommended Posts

Do you think flipping their order would benefit the lineup in any way? It feels like Trout is our only real MOTO bat right now, but he's the only guy who's a real elite on-base/baserunning threat, and perhaps he'd feel less pressure if he were focusing on getting on rather than bringing runners in. I know the difference between the 1 and 2 spot throughout the game is probably miniscule, but it's food for thought I guess.

At least it would put Calhoun after Trout (NOT Pujols), and thus maybe Trout would then try to steal more often and thus make the stupid sac bunt a moot point.

Plus having a lefty after Trout would give the catcher a tougher throw to 2B!   

 

But yet, for a guy who PREVIOUSLY got a rep for in game adjustments to pitchers, Trout looks terrible at that now with the .240 post-ASB BA!

 

No excuse to NOT steal at least 40-50 bases!   He stole 49 as a 20/21 year-old, for crying out loud!
