I'd position that lineup this way:

Gordon
Utley
Butler
Stanton
Hosmer
Perez
Moose
Cain
Escobar

(Not that this lineup is going to happen)

The 2 spot in the lineup is, statistically, a very important spot in the lineup. You HAVE to have one of your best bats filling that spot, IMO.

Honestly, if Hosmer keeps up what he has done in June, I'd flip he and Utley.

L-R construction of the lineup DOES matter for late-inning bullpen matchups, but your hitters are likely to get at least 2-3 ABs before a team is into its specialists. The lineup construction has to be optimized for those ABs as well.

With a guy like Utley, who has a career .852 OPS vs. LHP, my lineup is not as vulnerable to a Phil Coke type as you might think. Same thing with Giancarlo Stanton vs. RHP (.866 OPS).

Back to reality... let's talk about Lorenzo Cain for a minute. He had a really rough June and needs to show some signs of life. I still love what he brings to the table with the glove. Hopefully, they can leave him in the 6-7 range in the lineup and let him get comfortable. With his D, .270/10 HR/.330 OBP/.425 SLG would play very nicely for a few years in CF.

Oh, and... Here's Hosmer's final line from June:

.303/.347/.541
6 HR
17 RBI
8 BB/13 K
6 2B
1 3B

So... basically, his month of June was what we THOUGHT we would get from the guy every month at the start of the 2012 season.

I'm not COUNTING on that guy sticking around... but I again have hope he CAN.
