Billy Hamilton and Dee Gordon together?!?!

I just read on twitter that the Dodgers are open to trading Dee Gordon and I know that the Reds don’t need a 2B but it sure would be fun to have Hamilton and Gordon on the same team. Which one would you bat #1 and which one would be #2? Then with Joey Votto batting #3 would make a pretty interesting combo.
