Dusty Baker Enjoys the Company of Veterans

dusty.jpgMy buddy John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives us Dusty Baker's Opening Day lineup for his new team, the Cincinnati Reds:

Corey Patterson CF
Jeff Keppinger SS
Ken Griffey Jr. RF
Brandon Phillips 2B
Adam Dunn LF
Edwin Encarnacion 3B
Scott Hatteberg 1B
Javier Valentin C
Aaron Harang P

Okay, so I have to give Dusty credit for including young talent like Keppinger, Phillips, and Encarnacion, but really, did he have a choice? No. He had a choice in center field and he chose the washed-up Patterson to lead off. Yes, Corey had a .316 OBP last season. This is a sham; Marge Schott is spinning in her grave right now.

Gawd this is awesome. Dusty STILL thinks that Patterson should be leading off... after all, he's fast, and he plays center field!

The only thing that is keeping me from being completely giddy is that you put up a pic of Dusty in a Cub uni. Surely you can find a current one so as not to remind us Cubs fans of the horrors of him "leading" our squad.

If you can find a picture of him making a sexier face, send it to me and I'll post it. camptigerclaw@walkoffwalk.com

Until then, you're getting his bedroom eyes. Jesus I don't even notice the uniform when he looks at me like that.

I might be able to Photoshop a Reds hat on his noggin and/or a weewee in his mouth.

Marge Schott is pissed that Max Mosely stole her idea.
