Well, I'll disagree a little. I don't see Beltran as a #2 hitter. He's not a table setter. While Everett is not great by any means, he's serviceable. He makes contact and moves runners. Granted, any of the guys you mentioned are better hitters overall. That's obvious. But putting a power guy in the #2 slot makes little sense in the NL. You want your power guys in prime RBI slots. What you want in the #2 slot is a contact guy. Move the others up a slot each, and you void some of what Beltran offers, plus you have nothing of note beyond the 5 hole. I just don't see this lineup structure as particularly dumb.
