    I understand the logic about putting him lower in the lineup (I don't necessarily agree with it if the Reds don't have an OBP machine batting first instead) but if they are going to pitch to the better hitters the same, then I'm not seeing how that's a bad thing. Sliders in the dirt to Votto and breaking balls low and away to Phillips will pretty much mean free extra bases with Billy's speed. It might not even take a hit to score him at that point. But him ahead of Mes and Cozart, they are less likely to make contact than Votto and Hamilton will score less. I want him scoring more and his SB converting to runs more which means bat him in front of the better hitters unless the Reds can find a super high OBP guy to bat leadoff.

    the lineup (price told the media) is the best case scenario... weŽll see them getting multiple at bats with those lineup, but if hamilton or ludwick canŽt produce well enough the lineup should look different rather quick...
