As the season winds down, Dusty is running out of opportunities to zing us fans. With Bynum and Mabry relegated to little more than pinch hitting for various reasons, it has become increasingly hard to infuriate us. Les Walrond to the rescue! Rather than starting a young rookie, Ryu, with a legitimate future in baseball, we have a career minor leaguer, with no other purpose than mop-up work, apparently pitching in today's veritable forfeit.
Clearly, Dusty has taken up the vindictive, lame-duck role with vigor, and with this pocket-veto, he has foolishly and selfishly decided to give an old rookie a pointless chance to start, rather than letting a young rookie get some innings, which would helpfully let us better assess our situation for next year. Ridiculous.
