@Kyle in chat: the whole lineup protection deal is perpetuated because of those who “played the game”…because many played in high school or college, when there generally was a clear best player on teams. i believe lineup protection is probably more a “thing” at those levels, when not everyone is going to go on to play pro ball…the range of hitting skill in pro ball is a lot smaller it seems than the range of hitting skill in a high school league. in MLB, everyone is a “good” hitter, or else they wouldn’t be there (brendan ryans of the world aside).
