hoping we would see Francisco in LF today ... oh well

I think his best shot is Saturday at 3B -- day game after night game (like today) vs a righty. Last year in Toronto, they gave Rolen the day off every time there was a day game after a night game, and he played well under those conditions. I realize Toronto has the artificial turf, and that makes a difference, but it's a long season and I think Rolen needs off days to keep his back as healthy as possible.

Sorry, installer's drill was going. Gomes got out, don't know how.

membengal
04-08-2010, 03:31 PM
And these last two days are a memo to Dusty and the front office...Gomes needs to only face lefties, with Dickerson against the righties. And, yes, I know Gomes was a little friskier against righties last year, but Dusty sure did acknowledge in the spring he remained skeptical as to how Gomes would adjust when they left AZ and the breaking balls resumed their usual bite...
