Alex Cora said his plan is to switch Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi in the lineup in 2019, with Benintendi moving to the leadoff spot and Betts batting second. Makes sense. Betts hit .325 and slugged .714 with runners in scoring position, but finished with "just" 80 RBIs since the bottom of the Boston lineup wasn't getting on base. This arrangement should offer him more RBI opportunities.
