    How did Bobby leave Hinske out of the lineup? Hinske can play THIRD, LF, RF, 1st, and he should probably start there over anyone not named Heyward or Jones. Earth to Bobby, you have been consistently benching a Major League hitter and throwing out a lineup full of talentless losers. Really unbelievable guys. That was a sweepable series. But noooooooooo……… I’m Bobby Cox, I am going to take the same lineup that almost got no hit by Scott Olsen, and throw it up there against Jamie “The Fossil” Moyer, and then see if he can do the job. OOOOhhhhh, too bad, Glaus got a couple of singles. In one inning these geniuses looked at 3 pitches. 3. The inning took less than 2 minutes. The Hamburglar gives his usual performance that reminds Frank Wren every five days of what an idiot he truly is. Then Medlen comes out of the pen to look better than our two other starters who, combined, make about 23 million more a year than he does. In spite of Glaus’s 9 men LOB, we still win. Hinske, who finally starts, is an essential part of the win, so what do we do the next day. Infante, Prado, Melky, Glaus, McCan’t, Diaz, Conrad, McOut, Kawakami, BARFOLA! Cox is a baseball wizard ladies and gents. Were it not for three hall of fame pitchers, the man’s likeness would be going no where near the Hall of Fame. No logic explains not playing Hinske. If you wanna play Melky because he’s a righty, sit McLouth, put Melky in Center, and put Hinske in left. OR, if you’re even smarter, you leave Brooks Conrad at the hotel and you play Hinske at third. Either option would have been better than benching Hinske after he won the game the day before. Also, if you use the righty/lefty argument for plauying Melky over Hinske, then don’t you play Ross over McCan’t, who might be going blind for all we know. Everytime he gets in the box and squints I lose my mind over the absurdity of our team. And then Melky tries to bunt for a single and gets thrown out by 30 feet. How high is Melk Dud? I wish Hinske had hit that ball out in the ninth and then told Bobby he’s a moron when he got back to the dugout. GM, coaches, they’re all bad. That’s why this is a bad team. I bet Frank Wren opens the sports section every morning, flips to the standings, and then laughs like Claw from Inspector Gadget at the Braves and O’s in last place. It really has become a laughing stock of an organization. Oh, and I forgot to mention, Larry’s hurt again. Well surprise, surprise.
