New Phillies Lineup

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

I just don't see Abreu getting moved to the leadoff slot. I'll agree it makes sabermetrical sense but I don't see it actually happening. I actually like Utley hitting second if Abreu's 3rd.

Just going reverse obp here's what the Phillies lineup would look like based on this year's stats only:
Abreu
Burrell
Utley
Rowand
Howard
Bell
Lieberthal
Rollins

Obviously though certain players are over and under performing their talent this year so that skews things a bit...still makes for an interesting lineup. :)

I definetly cannot see Abreu being moved...I would cry, I need RBI from him. I though I read yesterday that Manuel said he refused to move Abreu from the 3 spot.

Manuel isn't considering moving Abreu to the leadoff spot. You can read more here:

For what it's worth, Rollins is leading off tonight. Abreu is batting third.

Actually Rollins ground ball percentage is UP every year over the last 3 - including this year. It's still low for a speedster like he is...I'd like it over 50%. But it was 43.3% in 2004, 44.4% in 2005 and 45.7% now in 2006 (was 45.5% when I wrote the article in my sig). If anything he's swinging for the fences slightly less.
