Here's Why

In case you couldn't guess why Dusty let Carlos Zambrano hit for himself in the 7th inning tonight, this ought to tell you:
 
AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG AVG
O'Leary 132 15 29 5 0 3 19 43 11 22 1 0 .274 .326 .220
Pitchers 195 16 37 9 0 5 19 61 4 75 0 0 .206 .313 .190



(stats not including today's game)

That's pretty scary -- when your pitchers are better hitters (well, except for the strikeouts) than a guy who's supposed to be your power-hitting pinch-hitter.

Yet another reason the club ought to go after John Vander Wal or Matt Stairs, either of whom should be available.
