    Bat him second.

    Bat him second, Bat him second,
    Bat him second, Bat him second,
    Always the same answer,
    Bat him second.
    So when exactly, did Lennon and McCartney visit Haight-Ashbury? Are you still collecting royalties?

    How about an order ending with Hicks, Escobar, Diamond, and give Florimon a try at the 2-spot, if Gardy is so dead-set on returning Mauer to #3?

    Florimon .696 OPS vs Dozier .508 OPS

    To borrow from Jim Palmer: the only thing Mr. Buck Ninety knows about big-league pitching is that he couldn't hit it.

    / edit: oh, I guess I really should say it: Tim was actually a pretty decent hitter

    I still cannot fathom that Doumit is playing and not Parmelee. Do not care about the HR he hit while I type this,,,,,,,,,.

    A bit of useless off-topic musing, spearmint certs and summer shandy don't mix.

    Does anyone have access to something that tells if Hicks is back to taking third strikes a lot lately? That would take him back to Week 1, if so.

    In that case my earlier post may have been redundant. Never mind.

    Wouldn't want to run all the ladies off TD.

    I was literally typing it at the time. I though maybe I should help Hicks with a rant too, but there is only so much magic in these fingers.
