Good news, bad news

The good news for Paul Janish fans is that he had a great night at the ballpark. He went 2 for 4 with a double (should have been a RBI double but the umpire screwed up) and a home run. Plus he reached on an error, stole third base, and scored on a wild pitch. Janish was the only Red to hit any extra base hits.

Tonight's home run means Janish now has more home runs this season than Orlando Cabrera...even though he's gotten only 1/4 the at-bats.

The bad news is that Orlando Cabrera is eligible to come off the DL tomorrow. And I have a feeling they will be activating him, because they are carrying six outfielders now and are short of infielders.

Janish is hitting better than Cabrera, and is the best defensive SS in baseball. In the heat of a pennant race, would Dusty Baker really bench him for Cabrera?
