The Book found that the #2 slot witnesses more important situations more often than any other spot in the lineup, so chances are it would help the Reds. How much? Probably less than anyone thinks, however. A few runs at best. The effects of lineup restructuring are largely overblown.

You can try inputing the Reds lineup into a simulator if you'd like:
