And he'll have none of it.
Absolutely no reason he couldn't have started Bernie in LF and Skip at 2B (both with excellent numbers against Bronson), with Lutz at 1B.

You might have Kiko's post repeated throughout the thread so people would know why he's playing.
Maybe we can set up a repeating post, show it twice a page.
As for Lutz, this is one game I'm fine that he's on the bench. Arroyo has big trouble with lefties, but he's real crafty and likely to give Lutz trouble with the off-speed stuff. Lutz perhaps could have played yesterday, against a more traditional RHP, instead of Ludwick.

Would seem that Bernadina maybe should be playing LF and Schumaker first base. Seems more logical, but Price probably knows something that caused this alignment, maybe Bernadina played some first earlier in his career.
Not sure why everyone is so excited about this Lutz thing. My guess is he'll play tomorrow when a more regular type righty is pitching, not Arroyo.
Memories.... of another bad lineup
Bernadina has never played in the IF before tonight as a professional.
And if the DH was allowed the last batter would be Frazier.
Price is in a tough spot, not giving him any awards, but the hitting is weak and injured.

This is what Price meant when he said he will give more guys an opportunity? Like the man, not sure about the manager.
I hope for another solid game for Mike, but not another fine outing wasted.

The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
It's certainly a lineup.
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
It is really sad when your pitcher is the 3rd or 4th best hitter in your lineup. With Bruce scuffling so bad, Mes, Frazier and Phillips are the only guys I feel better about coming up than Leake.
