I do think that today’s lineup is better than yesterday’s, but I still think there is room for Wily Mo Pena in it.
1: Ichiro (DH)
7: Wells (RF)
8: L. Rodriguez (3B)
9: T. Robinson (LF)
Texas is throwing LHP Derek Holland (Interesting fact: Derek Holland is a switch hitter), it sure would be nice to have a power hitting right handed bat in the lineup. Maybe Mike Carp could get a day off and Wily Mo could play a little first base. Ichiro is also 14 hits shy of where he needs to be to get 200 hits, and a full day off sparked him into a hot streak earlier in the season.
Anyone who can put up these stats in AAA deserves a shot on a team looking for bats:
