Phillies fans have to be rejoicing at the sight of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard in the same lineup to begin the season.

While they don't pack as much punch as they used to, they will lead a lineup that is not exactly intimidating, but has the potential to be efficient and successful.

With the back end of their pitching rotation shaky at best, it is up to the Phillies' lineup to keep them in games and turn uncertainty into consistent run production up and down the lineup.

However, for this current lineup, the ceiling is as high as the floor is low. Where they end up in that middle ground comes down to one thing: execution.

I'll breakdown the Phillies' lineup that was used in their 7-5 Opening Day loss to the Atlanta Braves and should remain close to the same for the beginning part of the season barring injury (Knock on wood, Phillies fans).
