i don't understand why werth is hitting second. i'd much rather see him 5th to split up all those lefties and victorino in the 2-hole.

good luck to the phillies and all their phans. title defense begins tonight!!

I think the Phillies should bat Utley 2nd and Werth 3rd like Manuel did down the stretch for a bit last year. That way, you can't bring in a lefty-specialist to wipe out Utley, Howard, and Ibanez all in a row. By the way, that home run was CRUSHED!
