A couple of things about Willie Randolph’s lineup tonight.
First, with Cliff Floyd sitting, he went with Lastings Milledge in left and Endy Chavez in right because of the latter’s better arm.
Yeah, Milledge had a great throw last week, but he’s also been erratic and the thinking is defense.
Speaking of which, Jose Valentin committed a couple of errors last night, but is back at second. Randolph wants to show his continued confidence in Valentin, and was rewarded with a RBI double in the first.
