Rollins Hitting Fifth

Charlie Manuel dropped Jimmy Rollins in the lineup after all.

Here is today’s lineup against the Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park:

  1. Shane Victorino, CF
  2. Chase Utley, 2B
  3. Jayson Werth, RF
  4. Ryan Howard, 1B
  5. Jimmy Rollins, SS
  6. Raul Ibanez, LF
  7. Pedro Feliz, 3B
  8. Carlos Ruiz, C
  9. Chan Ho Park, P

Well, that’s definitely balanced (S,L,R,L,S,L,R,R)
Now we’ll see if all those people who decried putting 2 or 3 lefties in the heart of the order receive their comeuppance.

I like it! Gives us some speed at the top and also closer to the bottom of the line up. Nicely balanced.

I think it looks great! Charlie was just saying last night, that he’s thought of moving J.Roll, but didn’t know where to put him. Guess he figured it out. Now, let’s hope for some good results!

I like it, but I think Werth should be batting second and Utley, third. Also, Chan Ho can rake, so he should bat ahead of Carlos, who’s struggling at the plate since he came off the DL.

Kershaw is one of the best young pitchers in baseball. I’ve seen him pitch a few times. He has nasty stuff when he’s on (1-0 with 3 ERs in 24 innings), but pitches like the uglier twin of Adam Eaton when he’s not (0-2 with 15 ERs in 9 innings). Both his losses were away games. He’s unstoppable at Dodger Stadium. We have to get this guy early. Our lefties have to stay away from his sweeping slider. We need to stop losing at home!! I’m sick of hearing all the #@%* from Fox or MLBNetwork about the Bank being a place where Phillies power hitters pile up homers and RBIs. It’s not an advantage for us. We’re 7-10 at home. Other teams have way more homers at the Bank than the Phils do (53-42). Dubee should be teaching all of our pitchers how to throw a sinker.

utley is top 5 hitter in the national league, there is no way he should be batting second in any lineup. he is a three or five hitter. period.
