I think so

So, 15 games, everyone except one ump should be behind the plate four times. If this is Joe's 4th then so be it.

Maybe Joe likes taking game 1 of the DHs behind the plate cause he knows he'll be less tired and thus more able to do it instead of game 2.

I'm not sure if he was ump for any of the non-doubleheader days. Too lazy to check.

Again, I ain't anti-Brinson (I too want him seeing more playing time), but Joyce has a higher xwOBA than Brinson, and Brinson has been mostly protected against good RHP. That's the kind of data FOs look at.

So until Joyce stops using his good eye to take walks and put balls in play, he's still a better bet than Brinson to help score some runs, even though Brinson's really come into his own vs LHP this year.

The thing is that Brinson has come into his own vs both LHP and RHP this year. Donnie just won't ever give him AB's vs RHP so most of his AB's vs them are still from early in the season when he wasn't having much success against anyone.

DVH the other day was saying that West would have game 2 of the DH off.  So maybe it's similar here.
