    I hope this is Dusty just talking nonsense to the media and he's not seriously considering leaving Hamilton off the roster.

    As usual, people are reading far too much into Dusty's comments.

    All he said was they haven't decided anything. That isn't controversial. As he said, they have to decide who he would replace on the roster. There's still several days to figure that out.

    Really no reason to fret this.

    Spot on. None of us need to know anything until MLB says it must be done. They/he probably know who will be on that roster, but do not need to say anything (nor should they/he).

    Sometimes this place amazes me. You really think Hamilton isn't going to be on the roster? That it's even possible he's left off? Really? Really?

    Guaranteed it's been decided. Just no reason at all to say so in the media.

    It sounds unbelievable, but Dusty said it's possible. Like I said, I hope Dusty is just talking nonsense to the media.

    Yeah, I read what he said. I also realize that Dusty has absolutely no reason whatsoever to tell the media or fans who is on the roster. There's not a shred of upside. Of course he said it was up in the air. That's what he's supposed to do. But, again, do you think in a million years that Hamilton isn't on the team, given what we've seen?

    Dusty asks a great question, but I have an answer. I can think of a few players who have been totally useless this year, all Baker favorites. Pick one Dusty. I could live with out several of them.

    Guys, don't sweat it - Billy is a fast CF that can steal bases. Have we forgotten all our gnashing of teeth over Dusty's obsession for those? This is Dusty's dream come true... he would personally carry Hamilton to the game in a rickshaw to ensure he's there for the playoffs. And we're all the better for it this time!

    There will be some very interesting decisions needing to be made. I'm not sweating the Hamilton nonsense. He's a playoff lock.
