Pull Hitters in 6.5

I like having a pull hitting lefty in the 2 hole... but not at the expense of someone who can get on base. I'd say you put your pull hitters wherever they'd fit best in the line-up anyway, without regard to pull or not...

I agree, I think the effect is negligible in terms of where to put them in the lineup.

My strategy

I like to alternate pull and spray hitters if I can't alternate lefties with righties. This way, I keep the defense moving before each batter, and this hopefully tires them out to the point where I can score a few extra singles and doubles each season.

I notice this effect is especially strong in the hot summer months of July and August. By playoff time, I stop using this strategy because moving the defense around keeps them warm and limber, thus enabling them to get to more balls than they otherwise would.
