    Not if they bring in a LH pitcher. And it's that possibility that convinced Miley to shy away from consecutive LH hitters. So, for purposes of bringing in a LH specialist in the late innings, I'd consider Lopez a switch hitter.

    After all, there's nothing wrong with consecutive LH batters when a RH pitcher is on the mound.

    I know that, but hey it's been Miley's reasoning for the order all year until today.

    Yes, but (1) it's broke so he's trying to fix it; and (2) Kearns isn't hitting, so he needs to be moved dowm.

    Two things that can get my dad to spill his beer at a ball game - missing a cutoff man and leadoff pitchers swinging at the first pitch in the first inning.

    Don't you get tired of defending this crap?

    Miley's current logic is based on desperation, as in he doesn't use it until his back is against the wall. Otherwise he just puts his head down and runs straight ahead.

    Great play by Freel to end the inning. 0-0 middle of the 2nd.

    Danny just doesn't know when to shut the hell up. He comes across as such a freakin' whiner. And he made a reference to some of the people booing might be drinking, which reminded me of his comment a couple of years ago about the drunks from WV and KY.

    He's every bit as effective as a spokesman as he was Monday night.
    I booed at my TV last night when Graves came in, and no, I wasn't drinking.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
