Default Lineup Changes?

1. Stokes has not hit the ball well this season except for one short stint.

2. Destino swings at many pitches out of the strike zone. When he hits the ball (fair or foul) he tops the ball almost every time and hits a ground ball. Do we not have a coach on the staff who can correct his swing? When he does not hit ground balls he is a great hitter.

3. Cortes had a very good series at Auburn. In game one he had 3 hits, game two had a triple, homer and hit a bullet to 1b for an out. He displayed great plate discipline and made contact in every AB in the 3 game series other than the one time he was called out on strikes on a questionable call.

4. My suggestions: Bench Stokes and Destino for at least a few games. Move Tolbert from 2b to SS. Play Row at 2b. Play Cortes in LF. Rotate Cullen and Taylor at Catcher and DH.

Destino, et al, also keep the bat on their shoulders too much. NEVER in the history of baseball has someone hit a ball by NOT swinging the bat.

Can't understand him not being benched. We need much better results from the SS position and we have other players who can play SS. Cortes is also a wild card who can also play infield positions and can throw right handed when doing so. He has only been used as DH/OF to date. We need to keep him in the lineup. There was a reason he was named preseason SEC freshmen of the year and he had a great series at Auburn. We rank very low in NCAA offense.

Default Re: Lineup Changes?

Stokes was replaced in the lineup with Tolbert at SS and Row at 2b. Row was 1 for three and had 6 or 7 assists.

Cortes did remain in the lineup and had a 2 run double. Once again he made contact with the ball and has no swinging SOs in his 4 straight starts. He should still have replaced Destino in LF. Destino did get one ball off the ground for a hit but grounded out his other 2 ABs. He also loafed on a fly ball that should have been caught in the 9th inning and let it fall in for a hit.

I say we put Drew Meyer back at leadoff and playing short, Jackie Bradley Jr. back in Center in the 2 hole, Steve Pearce in the DH hitting 3rd, and Landon Powell behind the dish hitting cleanup. That should get us a few more runs.

Yep this confused me as well....I think in pre-season, Holbrook stated that we have basically 7 infielders on roster that could all handle the infield duties. I could understand if Stokes was just a lights-out glove for our infield, and therefore we sacrifice his poor bat for his hot glove-work, but he's got the most errors on the team right now, and easily the worst fielding %. IMO his poor hitting is effecting his fielding, or something. Like he's trying to compensate for the failures at one spot, by trying too hard at the other, and is crumbling everywhere.

He needs to sit for a little while and work on getting his fundamentals back, regain some confidence, and lets see how someone else does there at short....

I'm moving TJ Hopkins to LF and put him in the 9 hole. We'll have speed up and down the lineup and I'm confident he can play a great LF with JBJ beside him in CF
