    If Raley survives the trade deadline, by some miracle, his ass better not show up on the postseason roster.

    Back in the old days, they always assumed you bring in a lefty to face a lefty. It doesn't matter if a right hander is more successful against lefties. It's just an old rule. Dusty was taught that, stats be damned. It's just like you HAVE to insert lefties and righties evenly in the lineup.

    Or when Dusty lets his Raley fetish get the best of him.

    Raley is better than Montero and Robel Garcia (as a pitcher).

    Straw is beginning to do the little value added things on the basepaths and in the field.

    Javier still the second best bullpen guy… just takes a long long (long) time to warm up.
