Blake DeWitt recalled from ABQ, Loney sits tonight

I got this one right, because I said it would be DeWitt or Xavier Paul, but I also got this one wrong, because I said my money was on Paul. Guess the front office ultimately decided they wanted the guy with the experience and the ability to play three infield spots more than they wanted a guy batting .571 at ABQ whose outfield defense has always been suspect. … Not sure I understand why James Loney isn’t playing tonight. He is batting .556 lifetime (5 for 9) with HR and seven RBI against Jorge De La Rosa. Loretta is hitting .667 off him, but that’s only 2 for 3. This will be Loney’s first game out of the starting lineup this season.
