We’ll score a lot less runs and Pedro will hit far fewer homers now, but all the walk-freaks should be in their glory.
Why, again, are walks so much better than doubles and homers again? I forgot.

I’ve been hoping for this lineup all season with Walker second and Jones replacing Presley and McGee at first. Never been a big believer in Presley as more than a 4th or 5th outfielder
