I really hope Hurdle reconsiders his "plan" to give Polanco another day off on Sunday, against a good right-hander.

He already gave Polanco Friday night off.

And the entire team gets Monday off.

Why on earth would he give his best power hitter Sunday off as well? We need his bat in the lineup and we need this game.

I really hope he comes to his senses ... but I'm not holding my breath.

I’m with you CB especially against a tough righty in Rodriguez on the mound for the Giants. He has been pitching really well lately and runs will probably be hard to come by in this game today.The last thing Hurdle needs to do is weaken the lineup by giving Polanco another day off and playing someone like Luplow in his place. The Pirates will be able to use the DH in Minnesota both games so if Hurdle wants to sit Polanco in right on Tuesday and just have him DH in that game I’m fine with that. As for today I want guys like Freese,Frazier, and Polanco in the lineup. Don’t screw up your chances to win this series and pull within 3 games of the Braves.
