View Full Version : Pick your OF

So lets assume you are Dusty and you have to pick three OFs to start every game of the NL playoffs. The same three have to start and in the same position. Who do you pick?

Who's pitching against us?

08-19-2010, 08:30 PM
Heisey, Stubbs, Bruce

08-19-2010, 08:31 PM
It will be a mix of LHP and RHP. Cant really specify names, but assume the top guys from the NL contenders.

Tough call, especially tougher after seeing Bruce play last night.

Stubbs, Bruce, and um....for the playoffs gimmie Edmonds I suppose.
I really like a Stubbs, Bruce, Heisey combo as well.

There really is no answer I guess. And I give Dusty credit for making the rotation work.

That said, Gomes is doing everything he can to take himself out of the rotation.

Why only 3, this team is built to have options in the outfield.

Edmonds/Stubbs/Bruce vs RHP

Heisey/Stubbs/Bruce vs LHP

Vs. Lefty:
Gomes LF
Heisey CF
Bruce RF

Vs. Righty
Edmonds LF
Heisey CF
Bruce RF

I know Stubbs has been hitting better and Gomes has played bad. But Gomes is a great hitter against lefties. And I think Stubbs needs to earn his time back in the field and I don't think he has done it yet. Heisey has been solid and should be playing.

Stubbs all day, every day in center in the playoffs

We will be facing tough starting pitchers so low scoring games are expected. You need defense to win those. Got to have Stubbs running everything down in center.

Edmonds or Heisey in left depending on who's pitching

vs RH
any combination of Edmonds/Bruce/Stubbs/Heisey

vs LH
Hesiey, Stubbs, Bruce

the other 2 can randomly start.

08-19-2010, 10:25 PM
any combination of hiesey, bruce, stubbs, edmonds. nix maybe once or twice a week. as long as there is no gomes.

08-19-2010, 10:26 PM
Nix Heisey Bruce

08-20-2010, 12:27 AM
Heisey Stubbs Bruce

I start Heisey in CF, Bruce in RF and Nix in LF.

I've then got Stubbs as a pinch-runner/Defender off the bench.

I've got Gomes off the bench for homerun power.

I've got Edmonds off the bench for clutch-hitting and as a LH-hitter off the bench.

Heisey/Stubbs/Bruce .. Edmonds in and out

08-20-2010, 09:24 AM
Easy for me.


08-20-2010, 09:28 AM
Stubbs/Bruce/Heisey....bad defense kills.

08-21-2010, 12:03 PM
Right now i like Nix, Heisey, Bruce BUT with the others getting a lot of starts/defensive replacements (Stubbs) and ABs.
