What's weird is Abreu and Howard aren't in the lineup today. I have no idea what's going on over there

Don't know about Howard but Abreu might just be getting a day off. He hasn't had one yet this season. Plus he bats like .230 against Willis. But then again who on the Phils doesn't against him.

What I meant was that with Abreu and Howard out of the lineup, it's kind of weird that Utley would bat 5th.

Myself, I hope Utley stays in the middle of the order. I've got loads of speed/top of the order guys, and need power numbers. Last week in that 2-hole he batted .360 and netted just one (1) RBI. :-/

i think utley batted 5th and howard and abreu were out of the lineup b/c dontrell was pitching. i expect utley to be back in the 2 spot today...

i also think manuel is killing the team. his constant tinkering with the lineup isn't giving them any consistency. let utley bat second for then next month and then reassess...

(btw, if you haven't already guessed, utley owner here)

$!@% ... back to second in the order.

Another stolen base for a category I'm running away with, and no RBI where I could use the help. If I knew he was going to stay in this spot all season I'd seriously consider dealing him for a middle-of-the-order power source.

So hard to separate fantasy and reality. The guy needs to hit 2nd to give the Phils a chance to win. As a Phils fanI hate when they move him down to 4 or 5. (Of course, as an Abreu and Burrell owner, I also hate it for other reasons.)
