How was this line up put together? Dartboard? Bingo set? Lottery Picks?

Granted none of these guys are scary to pitch to . . . but could they be if the line up was stable and had some kind of sense to it? Buck’s recent slide can probably be attributed to Pena and Gathright hitting behind him. Gordon is comming around why not try him out at the 4 spot? Why can’t gathright lead off and Dejesus bat 2nd? Why can’t Buck be the DH when Butthead Bell wants to trot ole Larue out behind the plate?

Will it ever change?
