What could be Francona's reasoning for having Carlos Santana batting 6th all season? I don't get it.

Probably because he's a switch-hitter. They've got a lot of lefties to break up in that lineup. Although Brantley certainly does not look like a middle-of-the-order bat. Kipnis may not be either.

I guess I'm of the belief that the better hitters should get more at bats.

Jason Kipnis OPS: .472 (still batting 2nd)

Asrdubal Cabrera OPS: .510 (still batting 3rd)

Carlos Santana OPS: 1.183 (still batting 6th)
