If Corey Patterson isn’t gone by Tuesday (or at least gone from the starting lineup for good), I quit. This is ludicrous. He’s the worst leadoff hitter in the major leagues, and if Dusty Baker thinks he’s a good leadoff hitter, then Baker is irretrievably clueless.
I’m sick of this nonsense.
(And I actually wrote this post before today’s game in which Patterson made nine outs; I had planned to post it after the game. Yep, three full innings of outs.)
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
