Re: To steal or not to steal... an amateur's one out analysis.
To me, Phillips is the only option for the two hole once Hamilton is brought up to lead off.
This was quite an interesting read. However, I feel there is no other place for Hamilton in the order other than lead off. With his ability to get on base (at least in the minors) and steal, he projects to be a prototypical lead off hitter. I can't imagine it being wasteful in the least.
