we are better without Guzman. Morgan hurts but not this much. We shouldn't be 0-5 in these last 5 games without him.

It's guys like Dunn and Willingham that are killing us as much as anybody.

Like I said. play all of the back-ups and young guys tomorrow. It's not like they can do any worse than this.
Well, yes and no.  I don't think it's quite that simple.

It does hurt us that much because we had finally defined the roles of everyone in the lineup.  Now you have to pull two guys out who were pretty good at what they do and you suddenly have to fill those spots with two guys who aren't fresh, aren't used to those roles and aren't in any sort of rhythm.  So, we're suddenly out two guys with high OBS which means the guys behind them aren't getting as good pitches to see which means everyone suffers. 

I really would have no problem throwing the young guns out there, but I wouldn't expect anything better than what we've seen the past couple of days.
