Rollins’ lead off hitting resume shines, but not as bright as his Whiteness.Rollins sports a career .270 batting average, .328 OBP, 7.6 BB percentage, an average of 98 runs scored per season, and over 400 career stolen bases.
On the other hand, if we look at Revere’s splits for the season, he actually looks more favorable.Ashburn rightfully deserves to have the most popular section of Citizens Bank Park named after him.Speaking of Phillies lead off hitters, since August 2001, Jimmy Rollins has occupied the #1 spot in the Phillies batting order.Since coming up from the minors, Revere had batted 1st in the batting order in 128 games, or 48% of the time, showing that he has experience as the table setter, and that Twins manager Ron Gardenhire trusted the young outfielder to bat in the position of the batting order that is most likely to accrue the largest number of plate appearances in any given game.So, after Revere hit lead off in almost every Spring Training game in which he appeared, Charlie Manuel made the decision to hit Revere lead off to start the season.Thus far Revere has posted a sub .300 on base percentage, only one multi-hit game, 4 total runs scored, and 4 stolen bases.
So, what’s wrong; why isn’t the Phillies new lead off hitter performing as expected?
Take, for example, late great Philadelphia Phillie Richie Ashburn.
Ashburn played for 15 seasons, 12 of them in Philadelphia, and batted lead off almost his entire career.
Following the Phillies’ acquisition of Revere, a number of questions begin floating around concerning the top of the Phillies batting order.
Would it be the veteran Jimmy Rollins, or the newcomer Ben Revere?
Ashburn showcased all of the necessary attributes of a good table setter.
