    It's just a matter of time before Rich starts complaining again.

    You have some weird fascination with hating Rich Aurilia.

    If I remember correctly, Hatteberg has been good against Carpenter this season. Is this correct? Did I just jinx him?

    I just don't like him. That being said I hope he keeps playing well.

    I hate not having RA in the lineup. Its really time to consider moving BP to SS on a full time basis now!
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    I have no idea what Jerry Narron was doing with EdE this season, but I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt that for whatever reason he was waiting until he was absolutely sure he was ready, and his confidence now seems (legitimately) restored in EdE. I think he really has the potential to tear things up the rest of the season and he's going to be on unusually rested legs to do it. Aurilia, meanwhile, is great to have as a pinch hitter and I think it might be a stretch to say he'll be complaining, not with how much he's played this season, not with how well the team's doing.

    Narron likes the vets, no doubt. But for whatever reason his caution in not using EdE for too much of the season may pay off. With as well as Aurilia has been playing, and as well as EdE stands to play, it's a split on the season I'll take. Heck, I wish Narron was this cautious with his pitchers sometimes.

    Is Jerry looking at what some of the hitters have done against Carpenter?

    Encarnacion is 0 for 5, and he's playing.
    Phillips is 1 for 3, and he's playing.
    LaRue is 1 for 10, and he's playing.
    Aurilia is 1 for five with a HR, and he's not playing
    Ross is 3 for 7, and he's not playing.

    Of course, that's not many AB. And their defense, current trends, and whether they need a rest or not must be considered, but I bet Carpenter is happy that he gets to face LaRue instead of Ross.

    If all else is equal -- which the manager is the best judge of -- I'd not bench both Aurilia AND Ross tonight.
