Cito must have really dug deep into the recesses of knowledge to realize hitting your three best hitters (by OPS) consecutively in the heart of your order is a good idea. They're also your toughest regulars to pitch to (top three in pitches/plate appearance, Rolen tied with Marco Scutaro.) Cito even went ahead and L-R-L'd them, stopping a long-running Gaston trend of helping match up happy managers like Joe Madden get his hot lefty-on-lefty action. Desperate times clearly call for desperate measures.
A less than novel idea is using Brett Cecil out of the pen. I know it was just a way to get him work, but no fucking way do I want to go down this road. Look at poor Brandon Morrow, languishing away bouncing back and forth. Let the valuable men start the games, let the fill-in trash finish them.
I thought I had a bunch of clever things to say about Ricky Romaro (he's good!), bringing Vernon Wells in for defence (Lulz!) and trading Alex Rios (don't be retarded!) but THE VIDEO OF DEVON WHITE'S TRIPLE PLAY CAME ONLINE YESTERDAY. Watch and enjoy.
