Re: Who's the leadoff hitter?
Is it an official failure? Has Dusty said so? I really don't think he thinks it's a failure, but I've got news for him. It is.
We don't have a leadoff hitter on the roster. Freel is to impatient and swings wildly. Hopper can bunt--he's a one trick pony who will get some infield hits. He has no pucnch whatsoever. The only choice we have is Keppinger and the lineup should go:
Bako (or whoever)
