Or should I say... Burns, McCracken and Ray-Ray are going.. But i don't know in what order.
One other variation.
If EZ is staying, they're going to want to give him lots of relief innings to keep him sharp. Could mean that not only Burns gets demoted, but another pitcher goes as well, maybe Shackelford to AAA, or White getting designated for assignment.
The benefit? Besides a smaller, but potentially stronger pen, we get to carry an extra bat on our bench. With the offense in the tank, that's worth considering.
I'd keep Ray-Ray, not only for his speed as a pinch-runner, but also because he's hitting a ton better than McCracken, and plays a few key defensive positions.
