There's no way I want Jim Riggleman near the rebuild. That sounds harsh, but he went from calling Jesse Winker the "odd man out" in the outfield on Wednesday, to putting him in the starting lineup on Friday. Maybe he read my article on benching Winker. He might've heard the entire fan base groan and roll their eyes at such an ignorant move.
