    Well he is 9-21 lifetime against Pettite, so for once I can actually justify him being in the 2 hole

    I like the line-up.

    Hatte gets a night off against a tough lefty. Rich has been pounding lefties all season.

    I imagine Clayton hits pretty well, career wise against lefties. Don't know this for sure though.

    You could argue Phillips at the two but at least this way it allows Phillips to create some havoc at the bottom of the order. If he gets on, maybe he can steal a base and then get bunted by Bronson to third. It gives Jerry some options down there instead of having what the board would call two automatic outs at the bottom of the order.

    Royce can swing the bat. We know he is not Barry Larkin but its not like he is Larue up there. I'm far from a fan of the guy but he can help the team with his bat (insert defense joke here).
