Drew Butera starts at first base

Dodgers give all the starters a rest so of course Butera is starting at first base. No one saw that coming.

Denis Poroy

While this lineup may look crazy it is the norm for a team who has just clinched. In 1977, the starting lineup after they clinched included only Dusty Baker and Steve Garvey from the starters pool. Garvey was only playing because of his game played streak, while Dusty Baker was trying to become a member of the 30 home club to join fellow teammates (Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, and Reggie Smith).
