Three right handed hitters from Syracuse plus of their pitchers in this lineup. Wow.

Still weak at the top but Maxwell has at least raised his average while Duke and Willingham could end up about the taking into consideration the number of plate appearances?

glad to see morse get the chance to get 4 ab's, if the front office hasn't noticed, pitching is an issue and our big time acquisitions next year should not come in the form of minor league non guaranteed contracts trying to play their way onto the roster, I'm so sick of the shuffle of nobody's trying to grab one of four open rotation spots with the rest heading to the pen

periculum -- and I say this with nothing but love in my heart -- we'll totally understand if you need to go catch a train to Philly.

That's an interesting line-up - is he just trying to stir things up a little, or just giving Dunn and Harris a rest?

@bford1kb,

Meandering through Brian's site ... looking at his spread sheet boards ... it appears that they are trying to "push" the pitchers from underneath or below. Rizzo seems to have made it his special mission to uncover top pitching in the minors in an attempt to "push" the prospects attempting to pitch to major league hitters.

I think you'll see more of that next year than this year. They still have starters that appear to be major league ready, or almost major league ready that we have yet to see. And that does not include Strasburg. And given their numbers you have to assume that more may be on the way?

@Scooter_, train to Philly? LOL; too late now.
