you simply have no way of knowing that, at all.
Phillips has produced nearly 100 RBI's with only 16 home runs, clearly he can hit with runners in scoring position and drive runners in.
I'm just glad there is at least one person in the organization that wants to try and shake things up a little bit. Little concerning that it has to be the 2nd basemen but whatever, I'll take it.
This from Twitter from a St. Louis media member (ESPN 101)
@StullySTL: Just witnessed Brandon Phillips go off in CIN clubhouse, not pleased w some media members
Reds need to come up big tonight. BP showing leadership by suggesting batting order change. Time to get back on track.
If he was doing public punishment -- he's had SO many chances this year and he's passed on every one.
Next issue -- is it a good idea -- that's another debate.
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
They will play with fire tonight....the Cards will be a little unfocused. The strike zone will be fair and Bailey will pitch well with Chappy going the 9th.
Stop the panic.
Despite an off day tomorrow, Molina sits tonite. A little Matheny hubris?
This just in...Due to the comical hijinks of the last two nights Dusty is making some changes in the lineup for tonight....Your new lineup...
1st base-Sam Kinison
2nd base-Rodney Dangerfield
Shortstop-The 3 Stooges--Yes all 3 of them
3rd base-Leslie Nielsen
LF- Jerry Lewis
