You see, this stuff is the reason that I think Baker is a complete freaking idiot. Lud is absolutely the most well rested slugger in baseball, and he sits because of past ABs vs. the pitcher??! Over how many seasons? BULL!
And what's up with Frazier with his Pete Kosma batting average batting 2nd, between Choo and Votto, instead of 8th? How can the writers let Dusty get away with that?
You won't get the best out of Ludwick if he is Jerked around like LaRussa did him. You PASTE him #5 in the lineup 'till the season is over. Then you got 5 dangerous hitters in a row.
Plugging a stiff in between those guys make no sense at all.
