Has the Marlboro Man seen the error of his ways... regard to The Black Hole of Suck?

Appearently he has, if you go by the Frepp's John Lowe posting of today's Tigers ALCS game 3 lineup...

1. Curtis Granderson (CF)
2. Craig Monroe (LF)
3. Placido Polanco (2B)
4. Magglio Ordonez (RF)
5. Pudge Rodriguez (C)
6. Carlos Guillen (1B)
7. Omar Infante (DH)
8. Brandon Inge (3B)
9. Ramon Santiago (SS)

Playing even 1 game with TBHoS, and his managing to do no harm, was pushing one's luck. I'm glad to see Leyland's King Midas reputaion hasn't gone to his head.

Still, there's a couple of head scratchers. Pudge at 5, Guillen in the 6 spot, plus Infante DH'ing, has me wondering. But who am I when it comes to questioning the Cigarette Smoking Man's managerial genius?

I honestly think Leyland just like screwing with all our minds, as he chain smokes his way through the playoffs...

Edit: Mlive's Danny Knobler has Guillen 5th and Pudge 6th. At this point, I'm not going to quibble, as long as TBHoS is on the bench...
