Yawn - same-old, same old in that lineup.

So what do you want from the lineup? Orr's hot enough to deserve some time. Do you have a Jones for Jorge Padilla or something?

@soul: Not a particular craving for Padilla, per se; It's just that Willingham's been in a small slump, and doesn't hit Wainwright particularly well.

Feature article on the official site is focused on Belliard's recent improvement. And naturally, he's not starting.

Of course, it makes sense to have the lefty Orr facing the righty Wainright. Just sayin'.

Well, JiM, I think the writer on writes what he wants. Sometimes they'll post a press release, which is from the team per se, but Ladson's articles are not an official organ. At least I don't think.

And BinM, I think batter-vs-pitcher stats are as cute as the next guy, but come on. 10 plate appearances? That's probably two games Willingham has played against this dude. And I'm guessing they were in prior seasons -- seasons when his OPS+ was not 149.

(149! I just looked that up. Really. 149!!)

((And there's a new post.Really. A new post!!!!!!))

@John: It was also good to see that Riggleman isn't considering "gutting" SYR until their season is finished.
