9. Derek Lowe - P

I like it. When I thought about it this morning, I just had a good feeling about Matty Diaz. Not sure why, but I just wanted him in the lineup. Bobby obliged, and put together a pretty good looking lineup. One could complain about Rick Ankiel, but he's no worse than Melky or McLouth, and his defense is much better. AT&T is a huge park and we'll need him to cover some ground out there. Besides that, no real complaints.
