    1.) Jeff Keppinger, 2B, Strong hitter who gets on base. And while he's ok on shortstop he's a more natural second baseman. Phillips is also our most athletic player and needs to be at the position the best athlete plays.

    2.) Adam Dunn, LF. Not your prototype two hole hitter but his on base percentage clearly means he should be at the top of the lineup. He's got the best slugging percentage but doesn't make enough contact to warrant the three spot.

    3.) Brandon Phillips, SS. BP truly can get on my nerves at times. He's never seen a first pitch he doesn't like. But when the man hits he's as dangerous as anyone.

    4.) Joey Votto, 1B. Strong hitter. Hits for power. Hits for average. Is just a true professional who will only get better. RBI's galore with this guy.

    5.) Edwin Encarnarcion, 3B. This spot was between him and Griffey. The tiebreaker was the righty lefty split.

    6.) Ken Griffey Jr, RF. Griffey is obviously not what he used to be. His bat speed has slowed and he has no business hitting at the top of the lineup anymore. Will toothpick finally get the guts to move him down?

    7.) Jay Bruce, CF. This guy obviously has the potential to be a great three hole hitter but has struggled big time lately. Let him work it out with less pressure.

    8.) Paul Bako/David Ross, C. These guys both make we pray we have a better catcher next year. For the time being a rightly lefty platoon is the only choice.

    Not sure it matters where Bruce hits, Dusty will probably do something stupid like pinch hit for him with Javy Valentin.

    haha, yeah right. Not even an infant would do that.
