Gameday Thread: 4/20 vs. A's

Recommended Posts

Aybar has never shown any consistency as a #1 or 2 hitter.

Chuck may be right....Giavotella might be better at 2...Aybar probably fits better at 6....but I still like Trout in the 3 hole...

Can you quit complaining about Pujols batting third. Who is the better option to bat behind Trout?

Might be time to shake up the lineup a bit.

It's not foreordained that Pujols has to bat third every friggin game.

And Matt Joyce as your cleanup hitter? Come on now...

With the exception of the first inning how is that any different than what we already do?

I like how Giavotella works the count. How about this?

Giavotella

Calhoun

Trout

Pujols

Joyce

Freese

Cron

Iannetta

Aybar

(Scioscia will not bat Aybar 9th, but that would be my lineup).

fair question, storm, and you're right - after the 1st inning you're basically just ensuring that Gio gets at least one more AB than he has been and possibly taking an AB away from the bottom of the order guys - but otherwise there's no difference.

 

It's a gamble on Gio getting on base at a good clip, which if he does, you've just increased your RBI opportunities for the 2 or 3 guys on this team who seem to know how to it.
