Re: Brandon Phillips back batting first
Phillips is probably the best option for leadoff we have.
He doesn't have the greatest OBP, but his power helps to make up for it.
If the Reds want to play Sappelt too, it really doesn't matter IMO if Sappelt bats 1 or 2.
I admire Phillips a lot. No one can accuse him of not caring.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
