Everyone who’s been suggesting this ad nauseum, despite my repeated insistance that “it’s never going to happen,” should be happy (mostly).
Lancaster is reporting that tonight’s lineup has Adam Dunn at 1b, Ryan Freel in LF, and Junior Griffey in CF. I know most of you would flip-flop the outfielders, but that really isn’t going to happen. This is probably just a result of Narron’s desire to keep Hatteberg away from the lefty Cole Hamels, and not having Aurilia to do it with. The only other option would be Valentin at first.
We’ll see if this is a long-term trend or just a one-time thing.
