Steve, unfortunately, we were right. Bobby loves a platoon. I would much rather him platoon Hinske with Infante, if he has to platoon Hinske. I would much rather see Cabrera replace McLouth, if anyone. I won’t be able to watch the game, but I hope Hanson can hold the Fish under 2.
What a ridiculous lineup. Is it by jersey number or something? Did my son do it? And not the 6-year-old, the two-year-old. The 6-year-old knows better. Besides, if he did it, SpongeBob would be in the 3 hole and would probably collect more hits. Does he not know that we are 4-11 against our division?
Not a great looking 5-8, again. We typically don’t score in games where that is the case. That’s like going on a first date with a 3-day old beard, unkept hair, a dirty shirt, and pants that were obviously on the bedroom floor prior to being worn. Unless the girl your going on the date with is an indie-rocker, or unless the team your playing are the Houston Astros, it’s probably not going to go well. Remember how much we scored when we had Glaus, Hinske, Infante 5-7. Yeah, me too. Those were good times.
Cracks me up that pitchers are still scared to ring the strike zone with Chipper. A big name takes a long, long time to fall out of pitchers’ subconscious. (Although I did read a distressing insider article today about Chipper’s regression, and the guy said pitchers are getting the news now and it won’t be long till his walks start dropping.)
