Astros’ lineup Thursday vs. Cardinals

Not much new report with manager Brad Mills’ starting lineup for Thursday’s series finale against the Cardinals. The lineup is pretty much the same, with Angel Sanchez starting his 25th consecutive game of the season at shortstop. That streak figures to end tomorow when Clint Barmes is expected to return from the disabled list.

Carlos Lee, who’s in an 0-for-15 slump, is in the lineup in the No. 4 hole as usual.

Here’s the Astros lineup:

CF Michael Bourn

SS Angel Sanchez

RF Hunter Pence

LF Carlos Lee

1B Brett Wallace

2B Bill hall

3B Chris Johnson

C Humberto Quintero

I know that Our Loss has a no-trade contract, but is it also written into his contract that he will always bat fourth? I think that Mills has shown enough patience. It’s time Our Loss bats a little lower in the lineup, or doesn’t come out of the dugout until we need a pop-up or a GIDP or a K with men in scoring position.
