Okay. The love affair with Rod Barajas has to end, now. I don't know where we got the idea that he is some sort of lefty masher. Do they have him confused with Molina? Rod Barajas, your number 5 hitter for this Sunday game. And of course, if Zaun has to come out of the game for any reason, we have the choice of catching Scutaro or Mac or having the pitcher bat. That's totally worth getting Barajas' lifetime .288 OBP smack into the middle of this lineup. And is it me, or do we seem to be facing a lot of lefties early this year? Maybe we should've stuck with Sparky...
