Why is Garko starting vs. Righties?



Has Ishikawa been demoted to just the defensive back-up dude?

We all know the numbers.  Garko is very good vs. lefties but is quite pedestrian vs Righties, with numbers that are similar to Ishikawa's.  Ishi is clearly a better fielder at first base, even though Garko can do a split while stretching to make a play, ala Harmon Killebrew or a prima ballerina   Travis has been improving, and considering his better defense and similar numbers vs. Righties, he should probably be starting vs most righties.  Of course Garko could start some games at another position, but he is primarily a first baseman.  But as of now, it looks like Bochy,  with his hydrocephalic head totally blocking the moon, causing a  "Giant" eclipse, should not obscure the fact that he seems to like to play the higher salaried Garko.  Which reminds me that the insurance commercials which play during the giants games are not really about Garko and Affeltd. My Farmer's almanac does take into account what town Bochy's head is in when predicting the tides.    Ok  enough of ragging on our esteemed manager: How would you play Garko and Ishi?
