I am relatively new to baseball, and unfamiliar with protocol at this point in a season.
Will a team like the Dodgers, who have already secured their playoff spot, bench Manny Ramirez this week to rest him for the playoffs? What about an older player who struggles sometimes like Raul Ibanez - is he likely to be on the bench for the Phillies this week?
If so, I might play Martin Prado, who is hitting well for the Braves trying to clinch; or Ben Zobrist, who is closing out a stellar season with a week of 7 favorable match-ups.
Like I said, I'm new to baseball this year, and have managed to struggle my way into the championship match.
Please discuss. Thanks
