Despite all the wrath he got, I was glad to see Cairo get that recent start. Not because I like him, but if he's on the roster he SHOULD get a start every once in a while. Of course I'd rather he NOT be on the roster.
    Why would you play bad players over good players? It doesn't make any sense.

    Play the best players.

    Paul Janish is never going to be an everyday player. Might as well get him used to his role now.
    I'm not saying he should start over anyone. But the occasional start, the occasional ph chance, the regular defensive replacement shot. It's the refusal to put him in for 7th, 8th & 9th inning defensive purposes that just boggles my mind.

    When a .773 OPS is a "really hot bat" you know you're talking about a weak bat.

    I think you're misunderstanding me. I WANT the best players to play. But if Dusty's not going to use Janish...then he's leaving our bench short a player. If you're not going to use him, send him down and bring up someone who WILL get some use...as a pinch hitter or another reliever or something.

    And you can't tell me that Rolen & OCab don't both need the occasional day off at their ages. 1 start a week for OCab at short. 1 start a week for Rolen at third for Cairo or whoever. The collapse game vs Atlanta is the one that stunned me. With that big lead we had early on...why not get Ocab some needed rest? Why not bring in the better glove to protect that big lead? Just sayin'.

    Who like Cairo who booted a double play ball in the 9th, who was playing that day for Rolen?

    It works both ways.

    Not sure I follow you here. Are you saying Janish booted a DP ball when playing for Rolen?

    No.

    Cairo booted a DP ball in the 9th, while playing for Rolen.

    Considering that he's a SS and the alternative is a guy with a lifetime .601 OPS it is what it is.

    Yes, I know. Errors happen. But during that game thread, many were complaining why we didn't bring in Janish or Rolen as a defensive sub for Cairo. Well, my thinking on the matter is simple. Cairo got the start because Dusty wanted to give Cairo some playing time. He also wanted to give Rolen the day off. You don't yank Cairo for Rolen in that situation. Cairo was going to stay in there simply because it was his rare turn for a start. Ocab though...we'd already knocked in a bunch of runs early and he hasn't gotten a day off in quite some time (3 days off all season thus far). I thought it made sense to bring in Janish for Cabrera back in the 4th inning or so.

    After falling behind Mather 3-0, Rodney gets him.

    And luckily LaRussa took out Pujols, so Jon Jay is hitting.

    LaRussa had some issues in this game.
