Only one I disagree with is Inge. I'll take him on my team as a catcher any day! I do have him and he's on my bench only because I have mauer...and well, you just dont sit mauer. But Inge was a GREAT backup while mauer was out and filled in nicely on 3rd while i had aramis on the DL. Now I have to decide on who to sit: Inge, Alexei, Pence, or Quentin. I've decided to sit Inge and Alexei, but if Pence or Quentin look to get hurt or slump, Inge will be right back in there.

Well, Inge had a nice resurgence right after I wrote this article.

From most reports, his knee is pretty torn up. This really doesn't help his hitting or his fielding down the stretch. I just traded for Chris Iannetta, and plan to platoon them until Inge's knee decides to fall off. Thanks for the feedback, and I think starting Pence and Quentin is a great idea. Good luck!
