In order to load the lineup with more right-handed hitters while preserving Nomar Garciaparra, Joe Torre said he would look to get Garciaparra some playing time at first base in place of James Loney. Torre said he nearly did it last night with left-handed Manny Parra on the mound before deciding against it. "I tried to reason who was going to give me the better at-bat - Berroa or Loney," Torre said. Loney could get some days off against tough lefties in the future. "Loney's so unpredictable," said Torre, who could choose to sit Loney against either Jeff Francis or Glendon Rusch when the Rockies come to town next week.
