    Why waste at bats/innings on dreck like Patterson, Majewski, etc. Dickerson should be in CF with Rosales in LF. Gotta keep the little girl happy I guess.

    I would love to see Rosales get at least a little bit of playing time one of these days.

    Dusty said a few days ago he was going to start Rosales in one of the Cubs games. Turns out he lied.

    Apparently Rosales was just brought up to carry Patterson's bags.

    "I'll try to work him in the right situation, right time and right place," Baker said. "At this point, you'd be substituting one young guy for another young guy. I'll try to get him at-bats, especially in Chicago. I like to have guys play in their hometown."
    Nowhere does he say that Rosales will get a start.

    I'm not really surprised, Dusty has been known to make up things in the past. IIRC he made up some stuff on Bruce and Freel earlier in the year and they both refuted it.

    He didn't make anything up about Rosales or his playing time.

    It's important to get Patterson and Bako as many at-bats as possible in this lost season.

    Yet, Corey Patterson's "right situation" remains a mystery...

    OK, let's move on about Patterson and Rosales. If you want to complain about their usage, go over to ORG.

    Bob Brenly has a mancrush on Chris Dickerson.
