It just doesn’t matter! (where Piscotty bats in Cards’ lineup)

ST. LOUIS — He wasn’t as animated as Bill Murray in Meatballs — that’s not his style — but right fielder Stephen Piscotty was no less clear that he doesn’t care where he bats in the St. Louis Cardinals’ lineup.

Piscotty batted fourth Thursday and went 3 for 4 with two doubles and two RBIs in the Cardinals’ 13-7 win over the Rockies. It was only his fourth game in the cleanup spot this season — he’s batted mostly second — but he told reporters after the game that as long as he’s in the lineup, he’s happy.

"Other than that first time through, it doesn’t make a whole lot of difference," he said.

A young Murray put a similar sentiment in much stronger terms in the 1979 film Meatballs.
