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.)
I think you're right. But Manuel keeps moving everyone in the lineup.
It should stay like this for awhile
Rowand is no cakewalk, so I think he offers Howard enough protection. I wouldn't mind flipping Burrell and Howard either.
