Lineups aren't out yet as I ask this question...

Trey Mancini (.916 OPS) and Ryan Mountcastle (.874) are two of the best hitters on our team vs lefties.   Mountcastle has settled in well at 1B/DH.   But in order to get both of them in the lineup tonight vs a lefty in Philly, would you consider giving Mountcastle a start in left field?   Hays, another excellent hitter (.889) vs LH, would play right.  Santander is only OPSing .706 vs LH, you could give him the night off.

If I was managing, I would do it.   I think the numbers clearly indicate it... Santander certainly isn't a better enough fielder over Mountcastle to make up for .167 points of OPS.   I don't think it would harm Mountcastle's development as a 1st baseman to dust off the outfielder's glove for one night.

I'd use the lack of a DH as a convenient excuse to give Trey a night off.

Good move, pitching around Harper.

Now let's see if Gutierrez can get on to start the 2nd so John Means can show off his mad buntin skillz

Here we go.  Bunt aficionados, rejoice
