Re: If Corey Patterson is the OD starting centerfielder-It will be a crying shame!
If Patterson was slotted in the 7th or 8th slot in the lineup, I'd be fine with him starting. Solid defense, speed, has decent power. In fact, I could see a boost in his numbers similar to what AGon did last year due to playing at GABP. His OBP would probably still be dreadful, but he could easily hit 20-25 HR in that park. Problem is, Dusty will continue to miscast him in the leadoff spot. The guy has always been a free swinger and always will be.
