Can we please not bat Byrd 5th?

I am a huge supporter of Marlon Byrd, so much so that I wished the Cubs would've traded him at the deadline so he could've played for a contender. That being said, Byrd should not be hitting 5th. His RISP average this year is.204, and he had 3 at bats with RISP last night and failed to not only drive in a run (DP, single with no RBI, K), but in the 9th inning he couldn't even get the runners over to 2nd and 3rd. Maybe I'm nitpicking from one bad game, or maybe I'm just frustrated by a terrible season. I just don't think Byrd is an RBI machine, and his numbers show he's more of a run scorer, save for 2009 when he drove in 89 (but he played in Texas, and they scored the 3rd most runs that year). Where do you guys think he should be hitting? 2nd? 6th?
