    So, Chin-Lung Hu comes in to run for Saenz.

    Yes, that's right. Hu's on second.

    Someone call these guys to let them know.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    I thought the same thing when he played short the other night and my gf's brother asked, "who's playing short?" I said, "that's right!"

    Hopefully Grady wouldn't manage to use up all of his batters on a 40 man roster in a 15 inning game. If he does then the only scenario where Nomar could be used is if the pitchers spot was up (since he can't play in the field). That's an extraordinary set of circumstances to get Nomore into the game. What's more likely to happen is Grady letting Nomas pinch hit in the 8th over somebody like Abreu or Young. That, and I think you would agree, is not a good thing. Just let the guy rest for another week and activate him when he is healthy. If nothing else it will prevent Grady from going to another vet instead of a younger guy.
    For some funny reason I trust Grady and Nomar to know what they're doing better than you. If he can't help the team I doubt they'd put him in there. So if there's room on the roster for him, which there is, why are you so worried about it? They haven't put him in yet, so obviously you're worrying about nothing. When he's ready he'll play. As you said yourself, we're not going to use 40 guys in a game anyway.

    It's a race for the playoffs, you do need a few guys that know the ropes, you can't expect rookies and untested guys to constantly come through in pressure situations. Everyone wants to see the young guys do well, but there's a time and place for that to happen and a time and place where you need veterans. We have both and anyone who can possibly help us now appears to be on the roster, so get over it.

    I'm not worrying about anything. I'm saying it's pointless to activate a guy who isn't going to help the team, which it is. Untwist your LoDuca thong and figure it out.

    I can't expect inexperienced guys who have played well to come through but I should expect vets who (sans Kent) have had disappointing season to all start hitting in pressure sitautions? The time and place for the young guys to play was the start of the season. The Dodgers are feeling pressure now because they stuck with the vets too long. You can have Pierre and the boys, I'll take the guys with more talent.

    And I already explained to you why it isn't, and gave you an example of a situation where we might need a veteran who can deliver a hit. You've yet to explain why it matters with a 40-man roster.

    Furthermore, your childish insults and use of names like "Nomore" and "Nomas" indicates that you have an ax to grind and you aren't thinking objectively or clearly. There are some people who have delusions of grandeur about young players simply because they haven't had the chance to **** up yet, you seem to be one of them. Whatever.

    Yah, you're example was what... a 15+ inning game with a runner in scoring position, the pitchers spot up, no other position players on the bench, and enough relievers left in the pen so that Nomar could pinch hit for whoever was already on the mound. Forgive me for not being convinced.

    Furthermore, your childish insults and use of names like "Nomore" and "Nomas" indicates that you have an ax to grind and you aren't thinking objectively or clearly.
    No ax to grind. Nomore should be a pretty self explanatory nickname. Nomas would be the Spanish version of it. You can figure out the Italian translation.

    There are some people who have delusions of grandeur about young players simply because they haven't had the chance to **** up yet, you seem to be one of them.
    Delusions of grandeur? Dude, they have carried this team all year. I know you love Pierre, Gonzo, and Nomar but they aren't very good. I would rather have young guys who have produced play and **** up then let vets play who have ****ed up all year. I understand you think it's important to have experienced players on a team for a playoff push. I agree with that. The difference is I don't want those veterans who aren't producing to play ahead of younger players who are. In other words, don't start a guy just because he has 10 or 15 years of MLB experience.
