This Lineup is all wrong

Tonight we watched Adam Dunn lead off in all three of his at-bats, this happens far too often. Dunn's 40+ homeruns will do no good if no one is on base for him to drive in. The high on base percentage hitters in this lineup need to be hitting ahead of Dunn. You cannot have Guz and Zimmerman in the 2 and 3 spots routinely making outs, it makes it impossible for our top HR/ slg% guy to drive in runs. That being said, I believe the 1-4 on this team should be as follows:

1. Nyjer Morgan

2. Nick Johnson

3. Josh Willingham

4. Adam Dunn

 

Nyjer Morgan isn't a great on base guy, but he is decent enough and he has speed in the leadoff spot. Zimmerman is underperforming right now, and while he isn't a terrible choice for the 3 spot, I think Willingham is definetly the better hitter.

 

 Runs aren't created by themselves, Zimmerman got off to an unbelievably hot start, but to be honest, his numbers over the past month or so put him much closer to the hitter his baseball card tells us he is. Let's give the big man the most oppurtunities possible with RISP. RIght now we are not maxamizing our potential to score runs.

 

p.s. Guzman has the audacity to tell Rigglemen he dosen't want to hit 6th? This guy is probably the worst everyday hitter on the team... get him outta there
