Hey all. Heading out for a quick run, will be back for gametime. Is Lyle hurt? If not, I submit that starting Rod Barajas instead of Lyle at first base is a dumb way to accomodate a rookie pitcher. Barajas has an under .300 lifetime OBP, even against lefties, and Overbay's defense would give him the nod even if they were similar offensively. Of course Lyle hasn't been swinging very well...

More importantly, let's go Purcey!!!!
