Nobody has any idea what they're doing on Crawford Street

Want to see tonight's lineup?

Bourn
Bourgeois (LF)
Pence
Lee (1B)
Johnson
Barmes
Altuve
Quintero
Happ

This is indefensible. Thirty-five games under .500, and Brett Wallace doesn't get a start. You're probably thinking - well, St. Louis must be throwing a left-handed pitcher. If you're thinking that, you've been Millswashed into thinking that Wallace simply can't start against LHP.

BUT YOU WOULD BE WRONG. Because the Cardinals are throwing Kyle McClellan, who - at last report - threw baseballs with his right hand. The only reason I can think that would result in me not jumping on Mills' shoulders and biting him on the nose is if Ed Wade told him, "Hey, the Angels will trade Mike Trout for Carlos Lee. They just want to see Lee play 1B one more time." That's it.

How much longer do we have to put up with Brad Mills. Clearly doesn't like Wallace. How do we expect Wallace to get on a roll when he comes to the field everyday not knowing if he is playing or not. Lefty vs Lefty is an excuse not to play him not a reason.

I have a question about our bullpen, specifically Wesley Wright. What's the story there? Our bullpen...I don't know how to say it and keep things PG rated. Wesley has some good major league experience and seems to be having a good year at OKC. Why hasn't he been given another chance considering the struggles we've had with our bullpen?

What's the difference? Wallace still sucked last I checked...

I say if you sit Wallace then you definitely should sit Johnson. His on base percent is down there with Q. I'm ready to bring up Jimmy Paredes or Jonatan Villar!
