    Jarrod Dyson, benched in favor of Vargas vs. the lefty starter, is 4-for-12
    vs. lefty pitchers this season, with an on-base percent of .500. .500!

    But he was benched so Vargas. just back from the Minors, with a batting
    average of .186 with the D-backs this season, could bat leadoff instead,
    because he bats righty. And he goes 0-for-4. Tied for a team "high" for
    the game with two runners left on base.

    Just like routine "scheduled days off" for their starters, this is another
    example of the D-backs routinely not going with the best chance to win
    but, instead, sticking to a pre-determined "schedule".

    Where is the logic?

    There's being prepared and then there's going with your gut....doing something outside the norm. Sadly Torey doesn't do this. Might be his downfall
