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

Want to see tonight's lineup?

Bourgeois (LF)
Lee (1B)

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.
