    Did you watch the games at Seattle? Watching Keystone Cops in the outfield is not conducive to winning. I watched LAD lose because of poor outfield play. Baseball is not just about hitting.

    Right now, this is the lineup Dusty wants. Who would be the play in CF right now given all the moves.

    Based on Framber's trends, it's highly likely Yordan will get more PA than he will have balls hit his direction.

    Is it possible multiple balls get hit that would have otherwise been played with this limited outfield, yes, but given this pitcher it's more likely than not Yordan will hit more than the OF costs us.

    I said this on other posts, but I fully expected McCormick in CF tonight with Brantley in LF and Tucker in RF and Yordan as a premier PH on the bench. All are roles they can handle and McCormick is next on the depth chart in CF.

    You fully expect wrong. Tucker is starting in CF tonight.

    I personally don’t mind it though, it’s regular szn and it’s good to try different lineups.

    Facing SF in SF it's certainly trial by fire.

    As long as Straw is in center, Dusty is fine with new lineups.

    Gotcha. Dusty needs to take off those wrist bands, but I doubt he gives a **** what I think. Maybe it’s for good luck:)

    If He puts Raley or Bielak in the game he should be fired immediately after the game.

    Sounds like a scene from the 1988 movie “major league”
