Where To Bat Your Worst Hitter - Part III


Now let's turn upside down what we did in Part I where we had 1 Pujols and 8 Bourns.  This time we look at a lineup with 8 Pujols' and 1 Bourn.  Again we have 9 possible permutations.  Let's see which lineup wins the most games.


Pujols(8) + Bourn(1)

RankLocationWins
71637463
42639025
93632502
84633319
65638148
56638437
37639393
18640235
29639674

In this scenario batting Bourn in the eight spot nets the most wins while batting him third nets the least.  The difference between batting Bourn 8th and 3rd is 1.25 wins.
