"Batting 6th, center fielder, Andruw Jones" - Dodgers lineup card.

Christ on a crutch.  It was one thing in July when Joe Torre continuously allowed this guy to violate the batters box.  Voluntary ignorance, you may call it.  But there are now two weeks left in the season and the Dodgers have a slim lead for first place.  Allowing Andruw Jones - or any .160 hitting position player - anywhere near the field is nothing short of aggressive ignorance, flagrant violations of common sense, and incompetence not seen since the signing of Andruw Jones.   

Jones struck out in the second inning.
