    What do you suppose Nolasco's reaction was when he saw the lineup?

    No Hicksie against a left hander. Is Fuld ready to come up too?

    That was the strangest thing about the lineup to me. Why not let the kid do the one thing that's going well for him?

    lol...but seriously, he went into a snit last year when he wasn't given the choice of which game to pitch in a double-header, despite his seniority, so there's a fighting chance he gets a little sensitive to clown car OF alignments.

    Santana's OF throw had a worse slice than my golf swing. And he came awfully close to catching that ball with his face...

    Surprised by the lineup. Not surprised that the Giants are ahead. I sure would like to see a few guys swinging the bat well.

    x 1000.

    I would rather have Hicks and Kubel and a chance for a couple base on balls, than two infielders in the outfield.

    So after this year and next year and the year after that Nolasco only has one more year to go, right?

    Dick: "Santana's got a great arm!" (throw is wide left of plate by 20 feet)
    Bert: "Nothing to see here..."
    [Meanwhile back to the action....Santana goes back and to his left around 140 feet to deep Triples Alley and traps a fly ball against his ear.... that Parmelee was about 100 feet closer to].

    Or he could get lucky and have a nice August and September followed by an offseason extension...

    That's it, he's a bit of a diva, especially for being statistically dead center average as starting pitchers go. Add to it the infielders in the outfield, poor hitting lineup, and the best fielding OF on the current active roster who has .05 higher BA against left vs right splits is sitting out. I'm betting he lost is mind in Gardy's office.

    I'd be all for it as long as he brings out his TD persona to argue with umps.
