Manager Ned Yost is considering using Scott Podsednik in the eighth spot for ''three or four games until he gets comfortable again.''
The slumping center fielder is coming off a three-day rest to clear his mind. ''It's something I really can't explain,'' Podsednik said of his slump. ''Night after night the bad at-bats have piled up, and I really have no answer for it'' except to say that he is swinging at bad pitches and letting good ones go by. Aug. 10 - 8:41 am et

Hopefully it'll help him out, he can't steal unless he gets on base and I really do need his steals.

because there is nothing better for a hitter's confidence than batting him in the eight spot ahead of the pitcher.

Batting him leadoff sure as hell isn't working. Why not try this? He's obviously a talented kid, so his struggles are purely mental. Moving him to the 8th spot takes the pressure of batting leadoff and allows him to swing more liberally without the added pressures of setting the table for his team. The psychology of a hitter is a strange thing, and you never know what's going to serve as a catalyst for a red-hot streak. Hopefully this is it for S-Pods.

I have a question. Does anyone know of his number of bunts he has attempted this season as compared to last season? It may have inflated his ba to the point where he looked like a decent hitter. I've watched him just a couple of times this year and it would make sense for him to bunt some but it looks as if he doesn't do it. Can anyone answer that?
