Time to switch Upton and Simmons in the lineup

How about Andrelton... I've been very bullish on his bat since he came here, but man has he looked great to start the year. No way he keeps up that BABIP but wow, he's already doubled his offensive runs above average total from last year. A league average bat the rest of the way will put him around 6 WAR.

I would have Simmons 2. 

Ohtani 3

trout 4

pujols/uptown 5/6

 

get 2-3 guys on base for trout 

i have also been wondering for a long time now why we insist on putting him ahead of people instead of more on in front of him.  
I get the whole more at bats thing, but a few multi run HR would not suck.  
I like this idea a lot personally.

The biggest concern that most had about Simmons when he came here was his bat. His defense was spectacular, but he hadn't hit much. He has certainly exceeded my expectations offensively.

He was just very raw and had a lot of development left to do with the bat. He was strangely focused on making contact above all else - he'd swing at every strike and try and hit everything the other way. Since coming to the Angels he's actually starting to learn how to hit.
