Back soreness has forced Placido Polanco from Game 1, it was announced just minutes ago. Wilson Valdez will get the start at third. So it turns out that Jimmy Rollins will bat lead-off after all, but this isn't how Charlie Manuel and the Phillies had envisioned opening the postseason. The lineup will go Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Werth, Ibanez, Ruiz, Valdez. Beerleaguer: The loss of Polanco, who had already been coping with elbow problems, weakens the defense and removes their best situational hitter from the lineup. Valdez did an admirable job filling in this season, but the offense is clearly weakened, particularly through 8-9-1.
