The Lineup and the Bullpen

As the starting rotation stabilizes, the lineup and bullpen are being exposed as legitimate problems. The severe lack of production from first base, catcher on days when Posada doesn't play, second base and center field is crippling the team when stalwarts like ARod and Matsui slump. Two runs of Brandon McCarthy? Really?

And Luis Vizcaino's time is up. File under "seemed like a good idea at the time," and "at least it got that mean old bastard out of town," but it's time to cut losses and move on. Chris Britton, your destiny is calling.
