Patterson sits on day 2, per Slusser

Susan Slusser is 100% right, and I am 100% disappointed, about Eric Patterson not being in the lineup today, apparently because Andy Pettite is on the mound. Pettite, you see, throws with his left paw, and Patterson is a left-handed hitter. So of course you'd rather have Rajai Davis, he of the fully-known quantity, playing in center. Are the A's aimless, or does it just seem that way?
