    Patterson really needs to go bye bye. He has become the OF version of Juan Castro, except he leads off.

    I'm pretty surprised Griffey is playing in this game. He'll for sure have tomorrow off.

    Considering the double header, I have no problem with the personnel in this lineup. The order is another story, however...

    Except Patterson actually plays defense. He has a use on this team, he's just badly misused.

    Any good he does on defense is totally offset by his awful bat. We all knew Patterson was a bad hitter when he came here, but nobody could have seen him being this bad.

    I don't get starting CPatt vs the lefty and sitting him vs the righty.

    I didn't say he needs to be the starter out there all the time
    (certainly not against lefites)... but he has merits against righties (reasonable power) in conjunction with his strong defense outweighs what the competition does.

    It should be a strict platoon, Patterson should bat at the bottom of the order, and used as a defensive replacement when on the bench. When used correctly, he has abilities that the rest of the team misses. Until Bruce comes up, I see zero reason why Patterson should leave. The guys replacing him are pretty awful (especially against righties).

    Doesn't look like it, based on DirecTV's channel guide, but the Met's feed is on HD, ch 625

    It makes no sense at all. It's totally by-the-seat-of-his-pants-lineups.
