Lately I have a hot bench and it seems I'm playing the wrong guy every day. It's nice to have a productive bench, but it can be aggravating watching them put up numbers. The easy answer is to play them when they are hot..but it really isn't that easy in reality. I have Kent, Kaz Matsui, Pence, Quentin, Ibanez, Cuddyer..But 2 have to sit.
A. Laroche and Kouz are also starting to get hot, but have them on the bench. Laroche would have to replace Guillen or Tex..and Kouz would spell Beltre.
Many like to trade away good bench players, but there is a long way to go and injuries do happen. It's nice to be able to plug a good player in when someone goes down.
I guess my question is: Do you guys stick with pretty much a certain line up all the time? I've been sitting Cuddyer so far and lately been going back and forth between Kaz and Pence..and it's not working out. I can't sit Quentin the way he's been playing, and Ibanez has been solid..How would you handle it?
