I have to say we all saw this coming. It was only a matter of time. I don't know how Hurdle, who loves matchups will fare without a lefty on the bench.
Having Inge and John McDonald on the bench seems duplicitous. This will put an end to the Russell Martin experimentation though, which is good.
My only thought is when are they going to let Pedro face lefties? Granted tonight against Hamels might not be best, but eventually he needs exposure and you need the power in the lineup.
