Three outs every game at the bottom of The Phillies lineup. 7-8-9. Kingery, Quinn, Gosselin, Haseley… fill the spots. Where’s Neil Walker? My God! I’d take my favorite wife beater Odubel Herrera free swinging in the 9 spot every day. Put Walker in there every day. He’s a Pros Pro. Find a spot for Jay Bruce every day as he can still swing long balls. The only player deserving a spot is Gosselin because he was hot in the brief preseason. And brethren, those three outs from 7 to 9 are the life or death of a championship team. Everyone likes to talk about the two hole and the sabermetrics, but if you produce 7, 8, 9, you’re in the MLB Playoffs. Book it.
