Words can't express the awfulness here.
Gomes not starting against a LHP? Is he gone? Janish in the 2 hole vs. one of the best pitchers in the game? Lewis starting vs. a LHP? Seriously, what is going on???
Lewis is playing because he apparently has a decent track record against Hamels. Janish on the other hand doesn't have decent numbers period. So he hits 2nd with Lewis 7th????
And what exactly is the aversion to starting Heisey in LF?
