Bat Hamilton 1, Stubbs 2, and Votto 3.
If Hamilton can get on base at a respectable clip, Stubbs sees a healthy diet of fastballs with Hamilton on the bases and Votto in the on deck circle.
If Hamilton can steal 1B........well, if he can get on first base. And that means the next hitter sees a heavy dose of fastballs.........then bat Bruce or Votto or Phillips second in the order, not Stubbs.
