Stubbs is a high K chance no matter where you put him. Phillips just alters his approach too much in the cleanup role. We know how Rolen is there. The options are just too limited, so thinking outside of the box might just be the answer.
A slow guy who strikes out very little isn't a DP waiting to happen?
EDIT: Wow, I'm surprised how little he's grounded into DPs in his career.
