Bobby Abreu should be the lead-off hitter

.... according to baseballmusings.com

I discovered this little algo that takes a line-ups individual OBP and SLG to determine the most optimal way to order a line-up.  You can check it out here.

Now, obviously this is an algo that shouldn't be taken seriously.  So many factors like baserunning ability, plate patience, dead/rusty legs aren't taken to account.  But it's fun to fiddle around with programs like these.

Despite the fact that this algo has flaws, I actually agree with one thing they have there and that is putting K-Mo in the 4th spot would produce a bit more runs than sticking him in the 5th or 6th spot.  But as we all know, the 4th spot is reserved for Vladdy (or Hunter on Big Daddy Day offs).

Just thought I should share this with the rest of HH.  I would've tried adding Q, HGH, and Mathis in there just to see how things would work, but I think my guesses would suffice (and I'm lazy).

If someone already found this program and has made several comments/a fanpost about it, my bad.
