Open Thread of No Sense, No Sir

I don't get it.

2B Rickie Weeks
SS J.J. Hardy
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Craig Counsell
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
LHP Manny Parra

I laid out the numbers below. Why Weeks is in this lineup is God damned baffling. If Counsell needs at bats this badly, he can play second better than Weeks for God's sake.

Russell Branyan continues to rot, despite STILL killing righties. But shit, Adam Dunn and Junior can attest how terribly hard it is for a lefty to hit homers in this ballpark.

Best part of this lineup? The guy who is a tailor made leadoff hitter (takes a ton of pitches, fouls a shit load off, can't hit the ball to the warning track and gets on base) is hitting sixth. In front of Cameron, Kendall and Parra. They could each get nine at bats and Counsell would only score from first once...max

But hell, no matter what happens this series Yost won't be the stupidest manager on the field, so he's got that going for him.
