I was fully prepared to write about Mark Kotsay batting third and then the home stand started and ruined everything.
The last two games have featured some odd moves by manager Bud Black: Far more strange than batting Kotsay in the three hole when Chase Headley is injured and Carlos Quentin is ailing. In fact, Bud Black’s decision to bat Kotsay third appears downright normal at this point. So I regret to inform the readers of Padres Public that deep exploration of Mark Kotsay’s batting order splits will have to wait for a rainy day. Or the next time Yonder Alonso plays second base in a MLB game.
In the meantime, feel free to participate in a poll . . .
I contribute to Padres Public on Thursday mornings and when I’m feeling particularly inspired. I can also be found on twitter at @AvengingJM where I say things in a certain way 7 days a week.
