So I have somewhat of a conundrum. I have the convenient circumstance of owning an A/A 1B, an A-/B- 1B, and a D/D+ 3B. Between them, I'd like them to play 1B, 3B and RF. My understanding based on this: http://www.whatifsports.com/forums/Posts.aspx?topicID=376099 thread is that whoever I play out of position will gain a 2% penalty in awesomeness + 4% per step along the chain thingy. My vague estimation is that 3b will be the most important position, and as such intuitively I want to play the A/A 1B there, and play the D/D+ 3B at RF. That said, I'm playing an A/A+ OF at 3B in a different league and he is really terrible, and 1B being further along the chain I'd expect it to be even worse. Should I just play the D guy there and be done with it? Mostly I don't have a great intuitive understanding of how big a deal a 2% decrease in awesomeness actually is for a fielder in practice.
On a vaguely related note, given e.g. an A/B guy and a B/A guy, which one should play CF and which LF? I don't normally end up with multiple competent OFs so this is somewhat strange.
