    Probably the best line-up they can run out there at this point, though I'd flip Hanigan and Janish.

    Janish 2nd, Gomes 7th, Hanigan 8th, Stubbs on the bench. Dusty is not the right manager for a team that is looking to the future and needs to squeeze offense from a stone.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Dusty is not the right manager for a team. Period.
    The Giants owe more to BALCO than Dusty.

    The Giants owed their success to Barry Bonds (and Jeff Kent).

    Stubbs needs to play. Dusty needs to go.

    Wouldn't play him in CF though. Dickerson frankly is my choice for 2010.

    If Stubbs plays, he has to be in CF.

    He can field circles around Dickerson, and Dickerson ain't bad.

    Nah, if they were listening, we'd have lost Dusty for the season.
    This lineup thing is driving me insane...I can understand occasionally batting a guy with a sub-.300 OBP in one of the top two spots of your lineup because you've watched them practice and you think they're going to perform above their current numbers, but to blindly lead off EVERY fricking game all season long with not one, BUT TWO guys with sub-.300 OBPs, you're ensuring that your lineup performs as poorly as it possibly can.
    Ugh!
