In the first game of their NLDS against the Brewers, the Diamondbacks faced the right-handed Yovani Gallardo. In the second game, the Diamondbacks faced the right-handed Zack Greinke. In the third game, the Diamondbacks faced the right-handed Shaun Marcum. But in the fourth game, the Diamondbacks will face the left-handed Randy Wolf. What sweeping changes does Kirk Gibson have in store for the starting lineup?
PItcher aside, the difference between this lineup and the Game 2 and Game 3 lineups is that Roberts and Young have swapped places. Not positions in the field. Places in the lineup. And they're both right-handed hitters so there isn't even much of interest to dig into there.
Kirk Gibson has his regulars, and he's going to stick with his regulars, because his regulars are pretty good, and his depth behind them is pretty bad. Another way to put that: laugh about Willie Bloomquist all you want, but better Willie Bloomquist than Geoff Blum or John McDonald.
