Not to start a "Dusty Baker is an idiot" thread, but I think Dubois has value. His .289 OPB is brutal but he's slugging .472, which isn't bad. And he's been great against lefties: .250/.339/.519, .858 OPS. Why not get him in the lineup everyday against lefties?
Without Derrek Lee, Chicago is looking very bad right now. In the second game of their double-header today, they had Neifi Perez (.287 OBP) hitting 1st and Jose Macias (.288 OBP) hitting 2nd. As a team, they're 2nd-to-last in the NL in OBP.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
