WASHINGTON — Life is different for these Phillies, who are now reduced to playing out the string. With 20 percent of the roster changed in 24 hours, there will be new twists.

Take Wednesday's lineup for example:

1. Jimmy Rollins 6
2. Nate Schierholtz 9
3. Chase Utley 4
4. Ryan Howard 3
5. John Mayberry Jr. 8
6. Domonic Brown 7
7. Kevin Frandsen 5
8. Erik Kratz 2
9. Vance Worley 1

They will face Edwin Jackson, who starts for Washington.

Will Domonic Brown play well enough to be an everyday player for the Phillies next season?
Yes. He has all the tools to be a starting outfielder.
No. The Phillies should look for another answer in the outfield.
