Should Kendrick hit 5th?

Does anyone agree that its time to bump Hamilton down again? I know Kendrick is better down in the lineup, but I don't think he'd do particularly poorly in the 5 hole. I think it gives Trumbo a bit more protection if Kendrick continues on the .300 level for AVG.

 

Having Hamilton at 5 right now is like a black hole in our lineup where rallies seem to go to die.

The best place to hit your best hitter is the 2 hole

This. That said, lineup construction is rather overrated in importance. You generally want your best hitters who get on-base the most getting as many PAs as possible. You ideally want a leadoff hitter who sees as many pitches as possible, allowing your studs to see the Starter's stuff before walking to the plate.

And Aybar is probably the worst on the team when it comes to this outside of Josh.

Gotta maximize Howie's double play potential
