Pierre plays, Kemp sits

Just when you thought this OF situation was settled, Joe tells us before the game today that it’s going to be fluid, at least for the first few days of the season when he wants to get everybody some at-bats. The only thing that isn’t fluid is that Rafael Furcal is the leadoff guy no matter who plays. Pierre is batting seventh today. Andre Ethier is actually going to take ground balls at 1B, which Joe says will give him another lineup option on days when James Loney needs a rest. Joe said Ethier would play ahead of Sweeney there because he doesn’t want to take Sweeney’s bat off the bench.
