Some of you might have noticed that my current roster is empty at MI. This was intentional. Since I locked up my playoff seed so early in the regular season, for the past several weeks, ever since O. Hudson went down, I have been playing more or less regularly without anyone at MI. My wins and losses did not matter for anything, and I wanted to carry as many closers into the playoffs as possible. Of course, with the playoffs starting, I will need to fill that position. For tomorrow's roster, I intend to drop Wheeler for a batter. Since Rios and McLouth are both off tomorrow anyway, I can move Cameron into an OF spot, thus freeing up my UT spot. I would have loved to add Dickerson for one day duty, but unfortunately, he also has tomorrow off. My choices (and the pitchers they would face) are, among others, Milledge (Kendrick), Francoeur (J. Johnson), Sheffield (Ponson), Crede (C. Lee), Dukes (Kendrick) and Millar (Byrd). If I consider only who has been hot during the past week, I could also see using, among others, B. Giles (Maddux), Prado (Johnson) or Shin-Soo Choo (C. Richard). Lots of choices here. Worst case scenario is that I end up with a 0-4 day from one of these guys. Best case scenario is if I get either a HR or SB. I am leaning towards Milledge or Dukes right now. Anyone have a differing view?
I'd go Milledge.
BTW, very cool of you to do this thread. I'll be following.
