He's played it before. Besides, he has to punish Willie for his fielding yesterday and bench him.

He just loves to get Ronnie in there when they face a lefty starter, especially when he has good numbers against him like he does against Hampton.

That said, he seems worried more about an offensive edge than shoring up the defense.

I was just dozing off and had the yankees/angels game on and Dick Stockton was enumerating all the problems the yankees have had this season (injuries, lack of production, 0-8 record against boston) yet they're still only 1 game back in the standings and he said that things could be worse. His partner (I don't know who it is) chimed in "yeah you could be the Nationals".  :?

Now that you mention it, cheering for the Nationals is a lot like having rape fantasies.

It doesn't even matter. Belliard should not be playing at all, especially not at 3B.
