Question.

Can anyone tell me which player; last week did not have a starting job on a big league roster due to the fact he really isn't very good, and today is hitting 2nd in the order on a big league club?

Can anyone name the player?

To me this defies logic. You are going to give 2nd most number of at bats in the game to a guy who just might be the worst hitter on your roster.

I was going to say Adrian Beltre, but he only applies to part of your description.

Correct you are good sir.

Am I being unreasonable here?

Jim Hendry and Dusty Baker to the curb? Please?

Shockingly enough, Womack has been on fire for the Cubs, so you can't argue with Dusty's logic... Well you can, but he's gotten away with it so far...
