Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts offered a short but marvelous post on Monday, skewering LA's decision to move the former Cub Juan Pierre to leftfield in 2008.

Jon points out that Pierre's adjusted OPS of 75 last season, compiled while he was playing centerfield, would have tied the lowest such figure for a starting leftfielder in the last 106 years.

Says Weisman:

Entrusting Pierre with left field is like entrusting Shelley Levene with the Glengarry leads. Pierre in left is a call for help.
Well said, Jon.
