    Brandon Phillips back batting first

    Here's the story:

    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/news/...k_cin&c_id=cin

    What's your take?

    Is Brandon better positioned leading off for us than hitting cleanup?

    Can this move put us back on a tear, like in 2010, when the Reds went 43-29 with Phillips leading off?

    Is he a temporary fix or our answer to set the tables?

    What's going on here, is Brandon priming the pump for his contract extension talks or stepping forward as a leader to solve a real team problem?

    Did he need to step forward on his own? Could anyone in charge ask him to do so first?

    Interesting development, and anything that's this interesting this late in the Dog Days is worth kicking around.
