"I went home the other night thinking if Counsell isn't leading off, who my leadoff man is going to be," Macha said. "So that is a bit of a problem. "When we face a left-handed pitcher, I'm going to say Casey will probably lead off."
Hart, Cameron, and Hardy were brought up alternate options. However, Macha said Hart is slumping, he doesn't want to mess with Hardy's turnaround, and he prefers Cameron protect Braun and Fielder.
