Re: Brandon Phillips Batting 2nd
As I've said before, my hope is that Brandon sees a lot of LH relief pitchers hitting in-between Choo and Votto. As we know, Phillips can punish LH pitchers. In the past, when Phillips batted second he followed another RH hitter, Stubbs, and there was less incentive for the opposition to have a LH reliever in the game...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
