    Bring Delywn Young, a switch hitting pinch hitter who can play some OF or 2B. Sweeney is a useless stick who can only play 1B. We already have 2 guys on the bench who are potential back up 1Bs(Nomar and Kent).

Not only that, but he's a veteran who's been on the roster since the start of the season. He's seen all the ups-and-downs, and can perhaps help put the Dodgers' playoff appearance into better perspective for the younger talent.
    A lefty off the bench is irrelevant because he sucks at hitting.

    The rest of the stuff you talk about, keeping the clubhouse loose etc. what does that matter? When the Dodgers were losing was he not keeping the clubhouse loose then? Sweeney is worthless plain and simple. All that crap about "keeping people loose" makes no sense. That doesn't attribute to any wins.

    Delwyn Young is the first one that came to mind. Sweeney has just been absolutely dog sh** this year.

    Vin said yesterday during the telecast that Delwyn Young would most likely be staying behind (which I stated in my post). That's why I left him off my roster.

    So you guys haven't answered my question. There are no other pitchers on our current active roster that would be worth bringing to the post season, IMO.

    I would bring McDonald or Elbert over Sweeney.

    I would take Hu or Repko over Sweeney.

    Sweeney sucks, "keeping everyone loose" is not a reason for him being on a playoff roster. Again, was he keeping everybody loose when the Dodgers were going on 8 game losing streaks? Sweeney blows.

    If there were no left hand bats on the team at all Sweeney still doesn't deserve to be on the roster. He is ****ing ****ty, who cares what side of the plate he gets out from.

    And it says that Furcal is the starting SS and DeWitt is still starting at 2nd. I have no problems with that roster. Well, I don't like Ozuna on there instead of Hu or Young. But he is better than Sweeney.
