Valdez.. you need a backup middle infielder just like a backup Catcher
I can see the arguement for Didi.. but I am going to have to side with Dusty's way of thinking.. you don't boot off Valdez for some rookie that has just played a few games in Sept. Valdez is obviously not a superstar, but he's contributed to the team this year. His short stint in CF was a lifesaver. I think he should be rewarded. It's not as if Didi is exactly a clear offensive upgrade anyhow.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
