Dave Delucci in the 3-hole? Are you kidding me?
I don't care how little protection he has, it's pretty ridiculous that he hasn't hit a single home run in 140 at bats. You'd think by now a guy with his power track record would hit a couple out just by fluke. His overall numbers--aside from his average--are grotesque. Nine runs, a .700 OPS. This is not what I paid for. What is wrong with this chump?
