Adrian Gonzalez benched again 

Chad Allen is the starting DH tonight, meaning that Adrian Gonzalez, who supposedly won the starting DH job, has been benched for the first two games of the season.

I just don't get it.

Yeah... But of course Buck will just say that he was benched b/c the starting pitchers were left-handers.

Ok, then why didn't we at least see Gonzalez pinch-hit for the likes of Allen (who is IMO rather worthless at this level and will be sent down soon) late in the game against the right-handed pitcher(s) he faced?

If Buck is hesitant to use him in certain situations or against certain pitchers because he's young and a rookie, then don't even put him on the squad.
It looks as if Buck and Dusty Baker are kindred spirits. That would Barajas at the top of Buck's F-Troop.
