A Quick Note about the Lineup (8/9/12)

After Starling Marte, Travis Snider, and Andrew McCutchen, hitting 1-2-3, reached base 9 times on Tuesday and 4 yesterday, Clint Hurdle has decided that this is not a recipe for success. He has replaced Snider with Josh Harrison, he of the .293 OBP and 84 wRC+. Ugh.

On the flip side, Garrett Jones is not playing against the lefty after one of the worst baserunning performances in recent memory. More importantly, Jordy Mercer and Michael McKenry start today.
