Phat Bastard: Phil Nevin

For those scoring at home, Phil Nevin is now 0-6 when he gets the starting nod at LF over Thunder Matt Murton.

Given that we have a day game today, perhaps Dusty will start Thunder Matt as well as Todd Walker and sit Nevin and Neifi "El Sapo Gordo" Perez on the bench, where they rightly belong.

I'm at the point now where I've convinced myself that Neifi would have to rape Dusty's kid while pouring sugar in his gas tank in order to get benched. Of course what do I know? He'd probably get moved to the lead-off spot then.

In order to help Dusty out, I took the liberty of creating this quick reference graphic for him. Just print it out the next time you're filling out the day's lineup and you'll have no problems.

Damn straight. Nevin is a great supersub OFF THE BENCH. He's not a starter in his advanced age, and that's why the Rangers afforded to let him go. Especially with Derrek back, he's not a starter.

As for Neifi... yeah. The fact that he manages to stick around shows how much of a sick nepotist Dusty is. I'm holding out for him to fall whenever Dusty does (my guess is end of this year at the latest).

Good quality win today. Doesn't mean much, but it's good to see some quality baseball at Wrigley for once.
