I hope it's clear to Bochy and Sabean that the lunatic fringe's cry for a youth movement is not just based on our fondness for young people, but that (for the giants at least) there's a strong correlation between youth and talent/production. Sabean needs to clean house between now and the trading deadline. Before then, I'd like to see this liuneup:
2B Eugenio Velez (S) - work on bunting game and try every other game
RF Randy Winn (S) - job is to advance runner, put ball in play, avoid GIDP
LF Fred Lewis (L) - gives him chance to produce runs, get on before "big bats"
CF Aaron Rowand - whatever
1B John Bowker (L) - our big bopper
C Benji Molina - might get most rbi opportunity in this hole, avoid "base-clogging"
3B Jose Castillo - our Feliz, without the D
SS Omar Vizquel (S) - whatever
After trade deadline, assuming Sabes can move Winn, Molina, Vizquel
3B Any young blocked guy
C Steve Holm, any young blocked guy
SS Any young blocked guy
the whole point of this post is to make the case that schierholtz needs to start after the trading deadline, but in the meantime, give us a lineup that's not embarrassing, makes some sense, and even mildly interesting.
