Now that Giants manager Bruce Bochy has given the right field job to John Bowker, where will he hit? 

"There's a good chance he will not be hitting eighth," said a grinning Bochy, who did not divulge specifics (Chris Haft, 04/04/10 mlb.com). We will have to wait and see come tomorrow where Bowker fits in the batting order.

Here is my preferred Opening Day lineup:

Rowand CF

Uribe 2B

Sandoval 3B

Huff 1B

DeRosa LF

Bowker RF

Molina C

Renteria SS

Lincecum P

Oh, by the way, I caught a foul ball today! My first one at AT&T! If you went to the game and weren't huddled under shelter with most of the folks, you may have caught one, too. There were only a few of us who sat in the rain.
