Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Always Red (09-27-2013)
The Reds are keeping tight-lipped about their wild card game roster until it has to be turned in Tuesday morning – only then, said both manager Dusty Baker and general manager Walt Jocketty, would the roster be announced.
Reds rookie outfielder Billy Hamilton was in Pittsburgh with the team on Tuesday and took batting practice, as did most of the rest of the team. Some of the Reds September call-ups, such as Neftali Soto and Henry Rodriguez, were not with the team in Pittsburgh.
In all, there were 16 position players with the Reds in Pittsburgh. - C. Trent Rosecrans
I haven't read all the previous posts, so apologies if this is a repeat: With the impact Hamilton had on the last series in Pittsburgh, how in the wild-world-of-sports could you leave him off the roster?
BTW, as for Dusty worrying about Hamilton being too nervous in a playoff situation: How about the Rays' Madden putting a kid making his MLB debut in CF for the bottom of the 9th in last nights game? Guts!!
