  1. Mike Kuhn says:

    Seriously, If you have a young power hitter struggling to get his feet settled, why move him up to a position where he might have to bunt? This was a Jack Wilson/Jay Bell spot in the line up in years past. I would say swap Alvarez with Crosby in this lineup.

    I did get to see the game yesterday. I have NO idea where Ronnie Cedeno’s mind is right now. He has no idea what he is doing at the plate.
