Anytime Bako or Patterson are in the lineup, the opposition certainly agree. They get an automatic our or two every time through the lineup. There is no 'agree or disagree' on that. No one on this planet short of Dusty Baker thinks Bako and Patterson should be starting.... September or not. They shouldn't be employed on a 25 man roster, much less in a starting 9.
