Sexiest Lineup All Year

23 05 2011

Even while missing Shane the Stain, the Phillies Twiitter account just posted this picture, and I gotta say…it moved.

Love bringing Chooch up to the six hole, maybe he’ll actually see some fastballs for a change.  Splitting up the lefties on the backside of the order is smart since Bronson Arroyo is on the rubber tonight.  Obviously with Shane in the lineup you have more flexibility to perhaps bat Utley 5, but until that’s the case (and Utley proves he’s healthy) this lineup will do.  The upside of having Dom Brown and John Mayberry at the bottom of the order is potentially boner inducing, but until either proves it consistently we’ll have to hold that nut.

Easy to say this is the most excited I’ve been for a Phillies game in about three weeks.  Let’s just hope we get more than 4 hits so we don’t spoil another Hamels gem.
