And usually hitting is not one of them. Less Chris Stynes and Lenny Harrises...more like a bunch of Luis Quinones and Juan Castros on your bench. Smokey Burgess would never be on someone's bench....I am surprised that Gimabi is actually able to get a spot on the Rockies bench for the last few years....and they need about 14 pitchers on their staff.
It is a small ball mangers dream to have all these little super subs running around that can bunt and field.
