kristen stewart robert pattinson taylor lautnerWell well, look who's spending time together again while Robert Pattinson is away. Kirsten Stewart and Taylor Lautner played at the batting cages in LA yesterday. Is Kristen switching over to Team Jacob? Is Taylor graduating from the Friend Zone? Let the speculation begin!

Kristen showed up in a plaid flannel over a baseball tee and cut-off shorts, a very apt tomboy outfit for both her and for the occasion. Taylor wore a fetching gray heather henley that showed off his Jacobesque pecs nicely. And so it goes! Did I mention Kristen drank Red Bull? Okay, with that random detail out of the way, let's talk about these two.

I just want to put in my vote for Taylor Lautner as Kristen's Transition Boyfriend. I think he'd be perfect and here's why. He's been a loyal friend. He's also a friend of Robert -- so not only does he kind of remind Kristin of Rob, he also bridges the gap between Rob and Kristen. He's like the methadone to Rob's heroin. And then there is his chest. For that reason alone...

But wait! I hear Kristen and Taylor were not alone together. They were joined by a gaggle of other mutual friends. Damn, you kids with your hang-outs and your let's-just-do-stuff-in-a-group and your hook-ups. I will never understand your mating habits. 

So for all I know, this may have just been a friendly outing with friends. Or a THING between Kristen and Taylor. Or nothing. I'm not a keen enough anthropologist to tell. I just hope it's not Kristen using Taylor to make Robert jealous, because that would be unacceptable. Do you hear me? We do not use Taylor thusly. That is all.

Do you think Kristen might be romantically interested in Taylor, or always just friends?
