WHAT ARE YOU DOING COOPER!?!?!?!!?!?!? I find this move absolutely absurd... Why is Tejada batting 3rd, Berkman batting 4th and Lee batting 5th. WHY?!?!? There is no possible good that can come of this. The only thing that can come of this is for you to get your butt fired. Lance started off the season great, Tejada 's been doing very well and Lee has been doing good enough.. There is no reason to screw with your 3-5 hitters in the lineup, yet that is EXACTLY what you have done. If you want to start screwing with the lineup, you don't screw with your 3 most productive hitters. Heck, Pence had probably his best night of the season and you moved him down a spot!?! Are you trying to see how many dumb moves you can make in a game? Blum had the worst game of the season his last time out and you bumped him ahead of Pence who had his best... Yea, that's a real confidence builder. I just don't understand... I'm trying to find the words to explain this and the only word that keeps coming to my head is ignorance...

While we're making stupid moves... why not just move Lance back to RF so we can Loretta some more playing time...
