Why was Carlos Lee in left field?

OK, enough about Jose Valverde’s failures, even though they have been numerous.

Here’s a question: Why was Carlos Lee in left field for the ninth inning last night? He got into the corner OK for the game-winning double and then made a one-bounce throw to Miguel Tejada, who made a strong throw and just missed getting the runner at home.

Leaving Lee in was Cecil Cooper’s worst managerial error of the game. Defensive substitutions for El Caballo should be a part of the plan this year.
