Fair enough, thanks for the Ortiz reference numbers. I'm not saying guys don't need days off or get injured. You'd just think a DH would be able to play just about every day.
yeah..and if hafner takes days off at this rate he will start about 154 games this year. nothing to complain about.
Yeah, I'll take that!!! Nothing wrong with getting a day off. This guy is a BEAST, and if a day off every now and then keeps that elbow feeling aight, then thats cool with me. This guy almost singlehandedly won me my league last year.
Victor has sat out at least one game, and he DH'd Sunday. There has been talk about him playing some 1B too, when he needs a break from catching and they don't want to sit Pronk.
