Sometimes I feel that one can over-think their lineups. How do you know that Zobrist, after 8 hitless at-bats, won't finally figure out Nova? How do you know that Kershaw won't have an off night and Cabrera will benefit? Okay, that last one is a stretch, but sometimes it's best just to see what happens with the main guys you've got. Looking at matchups is fine until you get burned by 'the odds'.
I would sit mid-tier batters against tough pitchers, so you could sit Cabrera for Harper/Trout. Altuve has been hitting very well, so if you need to keep your average up you could sub out Zobrist for tonight. However, you might miss out on a solid multi-category game by Zobrist. I'd stick with Zobrist.
