    Again, Collins did not do his homework. Collins sit down Duda cause of lefty! Duda vs lefties this year hitting .294. Duda is blooming so let him face more lefties. Hairston went 0-3. Remember that I mentioned about sitting down Murphy against lefty and started Hairston and Hairston went 0-3 too. Hairston is solid at PH only, he reminded me of F. Tatis in few yrs back. Hairston went 1-19 as a starter in last 2 weeks. I am tired of Collins’s decision making. If a lefty young hitter can hit from southpaw, then let that kid play!!! Let him taste more pitches from southpaw!! It’s killing me right now.
