Good luck, Mr. Maxwell... seems like we keep saying it, but is this your last chance?

I gotta like the rest of this lineup, though... let's stay on a roll!

After the offensive performance last night, I'm never questioning the lineup again.

ummm, I thought Sanchez was lined up for today, as noted in the other lineup post?

I never watch games Stammen pitches. Not worth it. Behind by 4 after 2. But I kinda like this lineup. Although not sure I understand bringing a guy straight up from the minors and making him your leadoff batter when he wasn't even good enough to be on the team before. Bernadina should be playing. Riggleman is crazy with his lefty-righty stuff. But aside from that, good lineup. And look they even got my boy Morse in there for a game. But Michael, whatever you do, don't show off and go 3 for 4 again or you'll be riding the pine for the next 2 weeks.

Pretty sure its Sanchez, I think Zito pitched the last game against the Brewers two nights ago.

Thanks, sjm. That was also my impression when I looked at the probable pitchers on the Giants site a few days ago.

Feet straight to the fire tonight for Maxwell, eh? Perhaps a 6-game final test - Hit, and you stay in the Orginization; don't hit, and you're a DFA victim.
