Why? Why? Why?

Questions after Jose Vizcaino started at 1B tonight. He's now 9-for-52 after going 0-for-2 tonight -- eight singles, a 2b, 9 walks and 2 RBIs. I know he's versatile but he obviously can't hit MLB pitching anymore. I see that Sweeney started in LF -- why not start Jason Ellison in LF and put Sweeney at 1B? Wouldn't Kevin Frandsen make more sense as a backup over the long term (Frandsen batted .250 (11-for-44) with a double, scored four times, had two RBIs and got 5 HBPs)?

Meanwhile, JT Snow is asking to be traded from the Bosox (he's 4-for-21, all singles) and Hee Sop Choi is posting decent Triple A numbers -- 27 for 91, 3 HRs and 16 RBIs. I suppose Vizcaino is a decent backup for Vizquel but it's scary to see him get over 50 ABs this early in the year and starting at 1B in a game where the Giants got 2 hits all night.

In the day's positive news, Lowry continues to pitch well and MLB suspended Houston Weasel "pitcher" Russ Springer for 4 games and "manager" Phil Garner for a game for their cowardly attack on Bonds on Tuesday.

Hey, did you know that Kevin Frandsen is from Almaden (South San Jose), went to Leland HS, home and HS of all 4 of your SJ nieces and nephew! Great family and amazing stories surround this fine new addition to the Giants! Fabulous aquisition! And why have him as back up? Let the kid play! (even tho he did hit Bonds during a warm-up)

The Giants must be reading this blog! They brought Fransden up again on Sunday when Niekro went on the DL.
