Optimizing Your Lineup By The Book

Finding the ideal batting order is overrated, but if you're going to do it, do it right. BtB shows how, from the leadoff hitter down through the number nine hitter (who shouldn't be the pitcher).

The Mariners have hired Tom Tango as a consultant to assist them in pushing forward their advancement into the 21st century of statistical analysis. If you’ve been reading [USSMariner] for a while, you know who Tango is - we’ve learned/borrowed heavily from his work over the years, and he’s stopped by to comment once in a while as well. I think it’s fair to say that, right now, Tom is the leading analyst of the day in public advancement of statistical analysis. If you wanted to know what the best practice for current analysis is, you wouldn’t go to Bill James or Nate Silver, you’d go to Tom Tango. He’s the gold standard of analysts publishing their work, and he’s made significant strides in pushing forward the understanding of baseball through his writings. Seriously, if you had given me a magic lamp before the new GM search began and said "you get three wishes", one of them would have been "Let the new GM hire Tango".

USSMariner - I haven't seen Tom mention this at his blog, but I'll keep my eye out
