Cozart in the 2 hole is killing us. I know Dusty will never do this but just drop Cozart to 7th or 8th and move everyone else up. Gasp! I know it’s crazy to bat Votto 2nd … OMG the earth may stop spinning … but it makes way more sense than giving up an out every time. It’s not like Votto has an extra guy on very often because Cozart is batting ahead of him. It just causes him not to get up sometimes. This will also make other teams have to pitch to Choo instead of just pitching around him to get Cozart out. Common sense says don’t bat one of your worst hitters more than the good ones so why do we do it? It’s really just dumb. I’m looking forward to watching Lutz again. He seems to do something productive every time he gets a chance!
