Is lineup protection really a "myth" or is it something that is just accepted in the sabermetric community? I see/hear people rattle this one off all of the time but has there been any kind of really strong analysis? I did a quick (very quick) search and the first thing that popped up was Tom Tango's article here.

Tango's work was mentioned in the piece that I wrote. Lineup protection, or lack there of, leads to more walks and more strikeouts, but has no effect on batted balls in play.
