Not to bring a negative attitude into an RRS appearance, but - could someone please explain the whole Jose Lopez/first base thing that's going on? I'm trying not to get too upset on account of we don't know what the new GM is going to do, but on what planet does this make even the slightest lick of sense? They're aware that Lopez doesn't even like playing the position, right? Why am I hearing talk of this being a more permanent sort of switch? Why? Why?
