Couple of comments:

- It was dumb to move Fields up to the #2 spot just when he was getting comfortable at the plate. There's nothing about his game that leads you to believe he'd be good in that 2 spot, and he hasn't looked good at the plate in the few games since.

- .19 ERA is all that is keeping me from saying KW had a horrible offseason.

They probably looked at that Josh sees a lot of pitches, and thought number 2 hitter. That isnt the case. They should of left him back in the order, allowed him to hit freely and learn. They should of moved Prancer or Toy down to number 2.

I'm glad to see him moved into the 2-hole to give him a shot. We just traded away the guy who's been hitting 2nd for the last couple of years and now we need to find another. What's to lose giving Josh a shot? He handles the lumber pretty good. If he doesn't excel then you move him down. That is, if he can recover from the damage this temporary move might inflict.

Lefties are hitting .310 against Pettite, Make sure we put Toy in at 2nd.

Hawk just said all 4 of our hits are by lefties, too. Guillen is a dope.

This is baseball strategy. You have a guy who features a plus cutter. You keep people of the same hand in against him. Against Mariano, a lefty gets sawed off. A righty has a better chance. Against Buerhle, lefties have a better chance than righties because of the cutter.


Ozzie is appendage aware though.

Yep. And the sad part is that we know this, and Guillen hopefully knows, yet he doesn't do it. I don't know (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)

Farmer and Singleton made a few comments about Fields glove. Saying its oversized like a OF's glove. Hopefully if the announcers are making comments about it, He can switch to a smaller glove like an infielder should have.
