Johnny Rivers' allegedly "good at-bat"** included swinging at Ball 3 and Ball 4. That is the fundamental problem with Mickey Hatcher's philosophy - don't work the count when you can hack away.

If you want to save the season, trade Adam Kennedy for relief help now (as per Matt Welch), call Jered Weaver back up and run a 6 man rotation (as per Rich Lederer and Shredder Seitz), Fire Mickey Hatcher (as per anyone who has watched three innings of baseball), Trade Joe Saunders and Brendan Donnelly to Milwaukee for Carlos Lee (as per me) and keep your fingers crossed.

Otherwise, trade for prospects and start the 2007 run now.
