    What should lineup be when Kemp returns? How about when Crawford returns?

    a) I think this should be lineup when Kemp returns this week

    Kemp
    Puig
    Gonzalez
    Hanley
    Uribe
    Ethier
    Mark Ellis
    AJ Ellis
    Pitcher

    Kemp has been sorry in driving runners in going back to midway last year (Even before shoulder injury) until he can show hes reliable in getting hits with RISP I think I wouldn't give him that responsibility, Id make him bat leadoff where he wont be under much pressure and this mental midget can just relax at the plate

    b) When Crawford comes back obviously Kemp needs to be bumped down

    Crawford
    Puig
    Gonzalez
    Hanley
    Kemp
    Uribe
    Mark Ellis
    AJ Ellis
    Pitcher

    I think we can survive Kemp's incompetence at the 5 spot because the 4 hitters ahead of him are very very productive

    What do you guys think? What lineups would you trot out?

    I don't know how I feel about an automatic out batting leadoff... until Crawford comes back, I would do this:

    Ellis
    Kemp
    Puig
    Gonzalez
    Hanley
    Ethier
    Uribe
    AJ Ellis
    Pitcher

    The good thing about batting him second is that if Ellis gets a single, the odds of Kemp hitting into a 6-4-3 double play are pretty low, since that requires the ball actually being hit. Plus, he does still have his speed, so if he does somehow make contact, he has a shot of beating it out. And if we are desperate, we can always have him bunt Ellis over, setting up the RBI for Puig

    I've been thinking about our lineup for a while and its hard to say it should be fixed every day because of matchups and lefty righty mixes. But I think our lineup should evolve around Gonzalez at cleanup.

    Crawford
    Ellis
    Puig
    Gonzalez
    Kemp
    Ramirez
    Uribe
    Ellis

    I still like Mark Ellis in the two hole over puig because of his ability to work the count, make productive outs, and bunt. Plus, Yasiel does too much damage to be at the top of the order. Puig is our best hitter and should be batting third. He uses the whole field with power and would benefit even more from hitting in front of gonzo. Kemp batting fifth to protect Gonzalez and get back into a little groove with the hot hitting ramirez right behind him as our second number 3 hitter

    Kemp bunting??? He is a damage guy why would we ask him to sacrifice over ellis who has mediocre speed. Kemp doesnt see enough pitches per at bat to be in the two hole.

    Have you seen him play this year? Bunting is his best chance of making contact.

    Puig needs to bat in front of Agon or Han Ram. He will get more fastballs this way.

    i like to have speed at the top of the order. Mark Ellis is too slow for me batting leadoff. I don't like Puig batting leadoff because he would be batting after the pitcher, plus he would get more protection batting 2nd with A-gon batting after him.

    1. Puig LF
    2. M. Ellis 2B
    3. Gonzalez 1B
    4. Ramirez SS
    5. Kemp CF
    6. Ethier RF
    7. Uribe 3B
    8. A. Ellis C
    9. Pitcher's Spot

    And

    1. Crawford LF
    2. Puig RF
    3. Gonzalez 1B
    4. Ramirez SS
    5. Kemp CF
    6. Uribe 3B
    7. M.Ellis 2B
    8. A. Ellis C
    9. Pitcher's Spot

    Kemp leading off at this point is completely laughable. I get the thinking. "Hitting in front of Puig will force them to pitch to Kemp." But it doesn't matter if the guy makes zero contact no matter where he hits. Stick him at 5, and hope he comes out of it.


    My girl. Don't look at her.

    STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE!

    why in the world would you have kemp protecting Puig.. It's either A-gon or Hanley going to bat after him not Kemp..

    It's not for the rest of the year, Kemp batting leadoff is until Crawford returns from injury. If we have had Skip and Mark Ellis batting leadoff.. Kemp is better than either one..
