Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
It looks like Paul Janish has lost the starting shortstop position, after a mere 200 at-bats. There hasn't been an official announcement or anything, but Janish has started only two out of the last six games (counting today's - Renteria is starting against the Cardinals tonight). I don't think it's an injury, because he is getting the occasional start, as well LIDR duty. Janish had been getting 2 out of 3 starts. Now he's getting 1 out of 3, and being pulled early for a pinch-hitter when he does start.
Maybe GM Walt Jocketty hasn't lost faith in Janish, but it looks like Dusty Baker has. If so, Jocketty may be forced to make a move. Either trading for a SS, or calling up Zack Cozart.
