I think we can concider this in general. Throwing the baton on a baseline kubb, after hitting the ground, will your baton go right or left most of the times?
For me, It tends to go right say 80 % of the time it don't carries on forward. So, throwing to short, opportunities are higher it will "by mistake" turn to right and hit the kubb standing on my right side of the kubb I'm throwing at. I therefore always try to have a kubb to the right of the one I'm aiming for.
As a strategy our team also often leaves the kubbs in the corners to be last. It gives opportunities even for the team mates to have a "jump stick". And, when throwing out the kubbs, maybe you will have an opportunity for the baton hitting the last field kubb in the stack to fly down to the base line.
