It's probably a moot point, but perhaps Charlie Manuel should consider starting John Mayberry Jr. instead of Raul Ibanez in left field on Friday night.
Mayberry has never faced Chris Carpenter, so that obviously is a reason not to put Mayberry in the lineup. He also batted just .250/.330/.455 against RHP this season, compared to .306/.358/.595 vs. LHP. Ibanez is 1-for-11 with two strikeouts and a GIDP against Carpenter in his regular-season career. He had an RBI single and a groundout against Carpenter in Game 2, but in the last two games, Ibanez is 1-for-8 with five K's and he's looked, in a word, Ibanesque.
Is Mayberry starting a long shot? Probably. Is there some logic to it? You decide.
