Brian Kenny did an essay the other day on well-rounded players vs. run producing sluggers, and had a point about sluggers better for the 162, and multi-faceted players better tools for single game play. Obviously on some level the whole thing was MOOKIE....but I'm not sure I'd seen the single game point highlighted as much before.
Anyway, if prioritizing LF Hays and bench Stewart over DH Stewart and bench Mullins is a small sacrifice, its one I can accept for giving Mullins some extra reps while they are abundant - I think he has more long term utility potential. Are you Glass Half Full on Stewart's bat? It was 6 great days, but his Zone contact rates pretty low (Sisco too).
