Over the course of a season, it probably equates to a few runs difference between the most efficient, and inefficient batting orders. Theoretically, you would score more runs if you ordered the hitters in descending order of on-base ability, as it stretches out rallies. But the research has shown that in general, the standard lineup (1 & 2 leadoff type hitters that get on base, 3/4/5 mashers) produces close to the highest number of runs.
So basically, you can draw the order out of a hat, and it doesn't really make a difference.
