Can someone out there tell me how many times DLee has killed a rally by hitting into a double play play, as he did today in the first inning, or struck out with some in scoring position? We fans who have been bleeding CubBlue for many years would like to know..prove our case..in switching him from #3 down to where he can’t hurt us..Switch him for Theriot, and maybe bat Byrd 4th, unless they want to leave him in#5 to protect Rameriz…But let’s do something like this before it is too late..
