And I don't like it much. Over the last few ST games, Narron has either bat Alex Gonzales leadoff or second. Just as I feared. Although Gonzo has had a good spring (he's 5-14 in the 1 or 2 position), that will change as he creeps back to his career average. I just hope Narron has the good sense to dro him down when he shows he can't hit 1 or 2 every night, but I doubt he will.
I'm also a little shell-shocked that our "aces" in Harang and Arroyo were hit hard the last two games. Arroyo hadn't allowed a run until today, but he got hit hard today. Another thing that seem apparent is Paul Wilson making the club. That's scary. I fear the worst on this--but hope for the best.
I'm still optimistic about 2007, but that Narron guy worries me. Of course, that's no secret around here.
