How many R/L/S hitters in your line up

SDS

What’s bare minimum of Righties and Lefties are in your lineup. Does the amount make a difference to you if you have X amount of switch hitters.

I run KeBryan Hayes at 3rd base because I love his defense and his hitting stats are not bad. Plus he had speed. But leaves me with only one lefty and 1 switch hitter

Or does it even matter to you if they hit both handed pitchers the same.?

SDS

I’d like to say no it doesn’t matter and to a extent it doesn’t depends how good you are and how good the card is but personally I need a balance I don’t do nearly as good with all righty’s or all lefty’s.

SDS

I'll never have 2 lefties in a row, and rarely 2 righties.. that's it... So usually a mix of 3-4 righties, 3-4 lefties, 1-2 switch hitters.. whatever is best out there at the time.
I'd take 8 switch hitters if they were my best options

As long as you have a good balance, all that matters

Well I use Roberts (I just hit well with him for some reason) , Chipper, Mickey, sometimes Ketel, so those are my switch hitters. I have to keep Reggie and Foster in the lineup, they hit everything hard. Same for 99 Sheff, everything is a bullet. Then it's 99 Posey , I've found him to be the best C for me. As for 1B, been trying our lightning Belli, but sometimes I'll go with Giambi. If I want a S there I'll use TA Santana.

granted once I get some better left handed bats for free there will be more lefties than righties

SDS

Batting I dont care handedness, its about what they hit, I still prefer to carry more guys who hit RHP better. But give my my best 8.

Pitching I want at least 2 LHP in the pen.

I treat my switch hitters as if they only hit with their dominant side when balancing. I find this leads to better matchups. For example, Chipper sees more lefties between Mantle and Belli. Or Mantle may see more righties between Biggio and Chipper.

1 (R) Biggio

IT changes all the time for me, but today it's:

1: Trammell L
2: Cutch R
3: Mantle S
4: Sheffield R
5: Banks R
6: Gorman L
7: Sandberg R
8: Posey R

Bench is:
Hanley R
Biggio R
Jackson L
Marsh L
Giambi L

If I use Gorman at 3rd and Giambi at 1st it's a perfect L/R balance.
