"If you don’t want to think too hard about lineups, you can remember a couple of very simple things: Get your best hitter the most at-bats, and hit your OBP in front of your SLG. Baker is getting both those things very wrong right now. Flipping Tucker and Peña is the simplest and quickest way to fix the lineup, putting more runners on base for Alvarez and Abreu."
