Open Thread: Game 115 - @ St. Louis Cardinals

Tony LaRussa: madman, or genius? While it may seem really, really dumb to hit your pitcher eighth, the research done for the baseball musings lineup analysis tool suggests that you actually should hit your worst player eighth. Why? I'm not really sure, and I can't read the original article to find out why. Still jokes about Tony LaRussa having two pitchers and not batting them ninth might not apply.
