with Scott Hatteberg at 1st base and batting 4th or 5th.
I like Hatteberg personally, but to me he is the icon of the A's punchless offense. He is a below average fielder and his bat just lacks the pop a first baseman has got to have. What were they thinking sending Johnson (or anybody) down and leaving Hatteberg in as the first baseman and cleanup hitter? Oh yea, the A's have plenty of problems elsewhere but Scott Hatteberg sums it all up for me. Oh yea, has he ever, EVER, scored from second base on a single ???
