New Lineup

Or have Trout bat before Hamilton. Trout gets on base, Hamilton will see more fast balls and less breaking balls.


To expand on this:







- Trout back to leadoff where he belongs

- No better way to see more fastballs than Trout on base and Pujols behind him (assuming Pujols stops sucking)

- Trumbo stays at cleanup where he's more than earned his keep


I'm sure this 1-4 has been suggested more than once here, but it's odd that Scioscia has yet to try it.  It gets him Trout/Hamilton/Pujols bunched together like he wanted without awkwardly slotting someone who is no better than the 5th best hitter on this team into the leadoff role.

I don't like Bourjos leading off. He Ks way to often and can't steal bases. Not what you want to see in a lead off guy.

Unfortunately as long as Trout is batting elsewhere, the leadoff options all kind of suck for that role.
