Ozzie trying to justify playing defensive liability Rob Mackowiak in CF:
"Right now we have to put the best lineup [on the field]. It's a must-win thing and not just play the game."Even Mack is surprised:
"I think I've been a little surprised because I haven't played the greatest defense, and you have to have your best out there at this time of the year, especially center field."
"Having Mackowiak makes it a better offense lineup. And now I have guys to play better defense late in the game and more pinch-hitting on the bench besides just [Ross] Gload."I didn't knew defense was important only late in baseball games. You learn something every day!
