Because he is only hitting .194 against lefties, and they were facing Atlanta lefties Hampton and Ramirez the past two games.

Goodwin, a left-handed batter, has sat against left-handers (Hampton, Ramirez) because the Cubs want to get in a right-handed "batter" (if you can stoop to call Trenidad Hubbard or Hernandez "batters".)

I just checked Goodwin's career splits, and, of course, Goodwin has a better batting average vs. LHP lifetime (.279) than RHP (.265).
