Default Lou "The Tinkerer" Piniella

Lou Piniella tried using Don Mattingly at third base in 1986 during a series against the Seattle Mariners. Mattingly became the first left-handed throwing third baseman since Mike Squires (the player, not the former WSI poster) in 1984. The first time it happened was out of necessity, but Lou decided to stick with it for an additional two games.
