Glad they won, but how is Cowgill leading off?

Obviously it really doesn't matter, does it? So why keep tryingto find ways to question what Scioscia is doing?

It matters only, in my view, if Calhoun sits.....there is no reason to play Cowgill or Shuck over Calhoun, ever....Calhoun has legit potential to be an everyday big league OF'er...Shuck and Cowgill don't...4th or 5th OF'ers maybe but not everyday players....whether Calhoun pans out as an everyday player, we'll see, but he has that potential....I appreciate Scioscia's abilities but playing Shuck or Cowgill while Calhoun sits (not yesterday but it's happened some this year) is a head scratcher...particularly when we're out of the race and evaluating for next year....Calhoun needs to play everyday from here to the end of the season...same with Green over Field or Romine...Green might not pan out as an everyday player but he has that ability....not sure the other guys do....

Mike: "Cowgill is leading off because righthanded batters hit leftes and lefthanded batters can't hit lefties."

 

Everyone else: "...but, Calhoun, is hitting over .400 against lefties this season between AAA and the bigs."

 

Mike: "You're not listneing.  Lefthanded batters...cannot...hit...lefties".

 

Everyone else: "Um...ok"

I kind of doubt Cowgill will even get a minor league contract next season. He is only up here to give Trout a few days as DH as the season winds down.

But that does go back to the original point. If Cowgill isn't anticipated to be here, why not then bat Calhoun lead off since he will be a much bigger part of 2014?
