The Book was Missing a few Pages

For some reason I found this humorous:

About 90 minutes before Tuesday's game, Marlins pitching coach Rick Kranitz heard that the Giants had changed their lineup, benching a sore Barry Bonds and activating first baseman Lance Niekro from the disabled list.

''Niekro, Niekro,'' Kranitz repeated, racing over to starting pitcher Brian Moehler's locker. ``What do we know about him?''

Not much, apparently, because Niekro singled, hit two home runs and scored three times Tuesday.

Niekro's single came in his first AB.  The HRs came later in the game.

The adjustments - not so good.
