Another Line-up Thought

There has been much discussion about the #2 spot in the batting order and I like many others have advocated for Ankiel in that spot.  I still think that Ankiel is a good option but I am now wondering if Greene would not be a better option.  Greene at the top of the order was originally discussed right after the Cards picked him up and the concensus seemed to be that he was to prone to strikeouts and had a low on base percentage.  He may still have the same problems once the season starts, but he sure has not shown any signs of such so far.  He is hitting for a very high average, has not had a problem with strikeouts, has speed and hits for power.  He would also keep the Cards from having two lefties hitting back to back and provide better L/R balance throughout the line-up.

I'm sure that there is a great reason why this is not a feasible option, but I need some help - what is it?
