    Oh, thanks guys. Stupid me didn't even think to look there
    "He [Janish] is a true shortstop, but Jerry's doing a great job offensively and we've been having trouble offensively," Baker said. "You've got to have some offense to replace a key offensive guy."

    You guys are so crazy, don't you know that it is physically impossible for a CF or a SS to bat anywhere but 1 or 2 in the lineup? I mean if they bat lower its like a guaranteed loss.

    Votto 1B
    Phillips 2B
    Encarnacion 3B
    Janish SS
    Ross C

    I just think that not only makes us solid offensively, but VERY good defensively. Yeah, Patterson is good defensively in center, but if he is there then Hairston is most likely at SS and that hurts us. Hairston & Janish is a MUCH better combo IMO.
    what has votto done more than phillips lately.

    I believe he's somewhere in the ball park of 3 for his last 16

    I dont think he should be put in the 4 spot. He hasnt earned the right to be there.

    Either Votto or Edwin need to be in the 4 slot. Neither of them change their approach at the plate when they're in the cleanup spot. Brandon does. He clearly tries to go for the long ball more often when hitting 4th. That spot is VERY ill-suited for him. Typically you want your powerhitter there and that means Dunner. But his poor contact rate makes him ill suited for there too. Plus his OBP should be higher in the order. I'm tempted to give Jay a shot at the cleanup spot, but he's been so successful hitting 2nd that I'm hesitant to move him out of it...at least for now.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Votto's hit the ball hard several times in this series already, with little to show for it. Utley's made at least 2 spectacular plays to rob him of hits.

    Phillips is just frustrating as all hell at the plate. With a righty throwing, I wouldn't mind seeing him down a little in the order. It, of course, won't happen though.
