They also discuss where Fernando Tatis Jr. should hit in the lineup (because apparently it's unfair to have him hit for all nine spots), what the plan should be for Dinelson Lamet moving forward, and why a certain Hall of Fame manager has gotten himself into serious hot water with his own clubhouse.
