Re: Brandon Phillips back batting first
This team has a 3-hole hitter and a bunch of 6/7/8 hitters. And a 9-hole hitter when Janish plays.
They don't have a leadoff hitter. Or a 2-hole hitter. Or a cleanup hitter.
I will say that Brandon Phillips is the least of the problems. He hits wherever the team asks him to hit and offers to help when he thinks he can help. Not his fault the team couldn't fill those other spots in the lineup. Someone has to do it.
