FanPost Friday: What’s your optimal lineup for the Phillies?

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to FanPost Fridays!

Now that the season has begun anew, we are reviving the FanPost Fridays series from the winter with a few added wrinkles. Just as before, each Friday, I’m going to provide a topic for you readers to answer in long form. Instead of writing in the comments, I am asking you shuffle on over to the FanPost section to write an answer with a little more heft to it. There, you can add tweets, post tables, create hyperlinks, etc. in order to get your point across on a particular topic. There will be a few guidelines to abide by:

  • Be thorough: Don’t worry about your response being too long. We’ll read them all, no matter how many words you write. There is no limit on how long or short your post can be!
  • Check your editing: When you go to post, check all of your spellings, grammatical issues, etc. before you send that bad boy up to be read. No one wants to read a whole piece about the prospect taking the team by storm. Scott Kingry.
  • Don’t take anything too personally: When we here at The Good Phight post, we understand that there will be people who disagree with us. As long as it is done in a respectful manner, we can handle those things. What we can’t handle is someone attacking us personally, belaboring a point that has been beaten to death, etc. If someone comments on your piece, don’t take it as a personal insult, treat it as someone trying to initiate a discussion.

That’s it. Where we will deviate from the past is that now and in the future, I will be selecting what I feel is the best post on the topic and putting it up on the main site. If there is any editorial cleanup that must be done, we will take care of it (without changing any content, of course) before we put it up for the world to see.

Again, if you try and comment on the topic here, no one will see it because all FanPost Friday posts here will have the comments turned off.

To start with this week, let’s post a new topic: so far into the season, we have seen Gabe Kapler put out many different lineups. He’s played players in positions that seem unnatural defensively, but there haven’t been any real issues so far. There are a few consistencies - Cesar Hernandez hitting leadoff, Carlos Santana hitting second and Rhys Hoskins hitting fourth. What would be your ideal lineup construction for this team - offensively and defensively?

Head on over to the FanPost section and let us know what you think!
