Hoplite owner Sean S was thrilled with his managerial decision to bump George Gore down to the 8th in the lineup. He claimed it was the turning point of Gore's season.
I set out to see if this was one of those cases, infamous throughout baseball history, where a manager remember's things with rose colored glasses instead of how they really occurred.
In this case, Sean was dead on:
Batting 6th - .268 / .367 / .366, .733 OPS, 41 AB
Batting 7th - .263 / .339 / .389, .728 OPS, 167 AB
Batting 8th - .337 / .413 / .528, 1.667 OPS, 89 AB
