Dusty Baker’s lineups aren’t half bad

Justin has put together a detailed analysis of Dusty Baker’s lineup choices, compared to some alternatives suggested by Reds fans. His surprising finding is that Baker’s lineup is actually tough to beat (despite leading off with Corey Patterson!). This is some great work by Justin, featuring John Beamer’s Markov spreadsheet (the right tool to use for the job), and it shows just how tricky lineup analysis can be.
