    So your head is exploding because he's not batting Derrick Robinson second? Seems like splitting hairs to me. Believe me, I am just as frustrated, but not because D-Rob is batting in the wrong spot.

    You won't catch me defending Dusty for this lineup tonight, but I would really love to see the game thread absent of complaints about this move (since literally everyone disagrees with it) so the thread doesn't devolve into the exact same argument about Dusty's value/lack thereof as manager that we have many times a week.

    BTW, did I see correctly in the top of the inning that Kazmir hit 94 on the gun? I thought he wasn't garnering interest because he was hovering between 85-89. If he can throw in the low 90's, why weren't there more teams courting him this offseason?

    I feel like Dusty needs to give Frazier the same sit down treatment he did to Cozart that got him back on track. The kid is Strugggling with a capital S...and an extra g.

    Good question. With his stuff I don't know why he has been so erratic.

    No idea why Cozart isn't playing.
    My guess, same reason Hannahan played yesterday. With the DH, it's an opportunity to get some guys some extra playing time that they don't normally get. Izturis hasn't gotten much playing time and just like Jack, he needs some reps.

    As for the 2 hole...no clue.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Unrelated to the discussion at hand .....Some guy in a Taylor Made golf hat was mewling aloud about how "freaking" boring Baseball is at my local watering hole.

    I really wanna pipe up with some kinda quip....Don't think I'm gonna. With age comes discretion and all of that.
