I think Bruce could come up to the majors right now and at LEAST hit .270. How about this lineup:
1. 2B Brandon Phillips
2. LF Jay Bruce
3. RF Ken Griffey Jr.
4. 3B Edwin Encarnacion
5. 1B Joey Votto
6. CF Josh Hamilton
7. SS Alex Gonzalez
8. C David Ross
I know that's 4 outta 5 lefties in that lineup but it could work in my opinion.
Or you could go....
That way you minimize the it to 3/4 lefties instead of 4/5. I'm not sure the Phillips/Bruce walks enough to bat 1st/2nd either. This team really needs to go out in the offseason and find itself a legit leadoff hitter. That is the one thing that lineup would lack. Preferably a right handed one.
