Janish's weekly start

Paul Janish gets a start today (once a week, whether he needs it or not). He's playing SS and batting 2nd. It's lefty Cole Hamels on the mound. Janish hits lefties much better than righties.

Mark Sheldon had this tidbit about Janish's last start:

Votto's streak of 41 consecutive games in which he reached base safely came to an abrupt end on Sunday when he was ejected after striking out in the first inning. Paul Janish replaced him and went 4-for-4 with a home run. Janish was the first Major Leaguer to enter a game as a substitute and go 4-for-4 with a homer since the Reds' Paul O'Neill did it against San Diego on April 18, 1990, a game the Reds won, 11-7. Manager Lou Piniella sent O'Neill into the game in the third inning as a pinch-hitter for right fielder Rolando Roomes.

Okay, Janny, I don't expect you to go 4 for 4 again, but please get some hits. Force Dusty Baker to give you more playing time, because Orlando Cabrera is terrible.
