Right now a ton of Bautista's value is coming from his ability to just get on base so considering the slump they're in it makes perfect sense.

At this point just throw 9 names in a hat and draw for batting order, not like it makes a difference the way they're playing

Actually Bill James has produced some pretty compelling models that says it doesn't make a difference regardless.

Yeah after the first inning it's not a guarantee the lead off hitter leads off again. Get your best hitters the most at bats.
