For the love of Pete...Dusty, please get Drew Stubbs out of the two-hole ASAP! At this point it comes down to common sense. He is nearly an automatic out. And not just that, he's not even putting the ball in play! Cozart was on third today with one out and he couldn't even get the bat on the ball. Just put the ball in play man!
I know we've all griped about Stubbs and his (lack of) production this year but enough is enough. Now, we could all point to fact that we just swept AZ and that it really shouldn't be a big deal, but it is! No playoff team can afford an automatic out at the top of the order.
We all like Stubbs' speed. We all like his defense, and if Dusty feels those are good enough reasons to keep him in the lineup, then ok. JUST NOT IN THE 2-HOLE! Please, Dusty, move him to 7 or 8. Now. Yes, I know, there's a good chance he'll get moved there when JV comes back. But in the meantime, I just don't get how Dusty feels this team is best served with Stubbs batting second.
(Just needed to get that out of my system)
