Well, there are several problems. I have no bench. Just pitchers. My worst pitchers are two closers I just picked up--Reitsma and Lopez. But I'm down one save, and need them. If I cut them now, I won't get them back till Thursday or Friday, when they'll be little help. I need all my pitchers. I'm winning all but the save cat, and if I'm going to win this matchup, I need all my pitchers.
Tomorrow, I can cut Beckett, Morris and Zambrano, as they make their last starts tomorrow night. But then I'd have Bonds on my roster for one of his off nights.
I could cut Ordonez, but since he's playing regularly, I really can't do it. Bonds is the only one who is going to sit nearly half the games from here on out. Even if he plays three games, and hits two homeruns per game, that'd mean I'd still need four homeruns from my other players and my opponent not to get any homeruns.
*shaking my head as I rationalize this...*
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
