Baker format team?

We are having our first baker format comp soon.
Wondering the best way to utilize the higher avg bowler with the lower avg bowler
within the 5 person team?

I wouldn't look at it as high avg vs lower avg - look at it as who is better or more reliable in the clutch. I know high avg bowlers who CHOKE when the game is on the line, and I know lower avg bowlers that when it's coming down to it, they will punch out every time, or at the very least mark.

Put your reliable guys at 5/10 - the 10th frame is "worth more" than the others.
Put your next most reliable guy at 4/9 - that foundation frame is extremely important!
Probably put your least reliable guy at 1/6 - if something happens on the first frame, you can get around it.
Then you have flexibility with 2/7 and 3/8.

That is the way Baker works, right? (gah, I need coffee!)
