You have to look at the other side of the coin. I allows Matt Wieters
to play first, third and pressure off his knees. It would be nice to see a solid rotation of those two behind the plate, but I highly doubt it happens unless no other team will give him full time duty behind the plate. I would not knock the right to have a 40 HR power bat at first.
Look, played the game at extreamly high level. I would rather have a .300 hitter with .400 OBP and .700 OPS
over any masher. I will take the Josh Hamilton's of the world over Prince Fielder/Adam Dunn types. It is just me, but good hitter beat masher any day of the week.
The best pure lineup in baseball is either the Rays or Twins (I will never say Yankees because a Merc lineup never should count). Take Carlos Pena out and it still a good lineup with a solid group of above average hitters. The Twins are the best example that you can win with good hitters and guys that hit 30 HR's. The Blue Jays are pure mashers and they are sitting at home come October 3rd as well.
