Words I thought I'd never type again, Edwin Encarnacion is playing left field for the Blue Jays today. That moves Melky Cabrera over to right field and lets Bautista DH and Lind play 1B.

I'm not a fan of the idea but that's what we got. If I remember right, last time Edwin played in left he hurt himself. Gibby wants all his bats in the lineup.
