RISP

Anyone wondering about Hanley with RISP why it is so low?

 

.194/.293/.194/.487

 

Not a pretty line at all. Most of his RBIs are off of his own homeruns (6 HR and 9 RBI), would it perhaps be better to leave him in the lead off spot if he has trouble hitting with Runners on base (.161/.299/.214/.513)

Any thoughts folks?

I think Hanley can be okay at #3, but he's the best lead off man we have, and that should be his role for the time being. However, Hanley would be more effective as a leadoff if Hermida was at #2. Right now, having Amezaga/Reggie and then Uggla at the top of the order isn't all that smart.

I posted Hanley's numbers since going in the three spot in another thread...His numbers with nobody on is INSANE with Cabrera behind him, but with people on he has had only one hit.

 

Maybe something like Hermida-Hanley-Cabrera would be interesting, so that Hanley is still protected by Cabs...But I'd rather him be leading off either way. If Hermida keeps hitting well, that should be enough protection.

All this talk of the trickle effect of Hanley batting lower worries me because Hanley hasn't exactly lit the world on fire with runners on, and I think that Hanley moving down in the order might not be responsible for the resurgence of our offense, merely a product of the other guys in the lineup performing. Hanley hasn't been involved in many of our big innings. I like him much better as a table setter at this point than a slugger.

I feel we are cramping Hanley's offensive capabilities by placing him 3rd in the lineup and it has been showing in the past few games. I love Uggla second in the lineup. more now that his bat is waking up. If a change needs to be made bring Hermida to 3rd in the lineup and leave Cabs as the cleanup followed by Willy and Boone
