My whole point was that I think last year was an anomaly for most of that lineup. Utley, Rollins and Howard have all been much better than they were last year, and I expect at least two of the three to bounce back this year with solid numbers, with Howard potentially being an MVP contender. I agree that Delmon is a poor OBP player, but he still delivers 20-30 HR a year which is still useful if the top 4 are all producing well.

And I think Revere is a solid #2 hitter.
