There is also this piece by John Fay that discusses the fact that Dave Miley has finally dropped Joe Randa back down in the lineup. Can someone explain to me, however, the rationale for hitting Casey third and Dunn fifth? I understand Miley’s obsession for breaking up the LH and RH hitters, but why not hit your best hitter third?
Could it be that Miley thinks Casey is his best hitter? Sheesh….
Finally…did you know that the bullpen remains terrible, even after O’Brien’s supposed “makeover” in the offseason?
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
