Dave, I was thinking exactly what you stated, we've got a great bullpen, deep now, no reason not to just run 'em out for a few innings each.
Also, as you observed, let's pinch hit for them each time they come up, we could use 3 more quality at bats per game (oh boy, could we ever).
(Let's see, bottom of the 3rd, whould I rather have Halama or Short come to bat with 2 men on? Hmmmmmm....)
We've got bats, we've got pinch runners, we've got infielders, outfielders, and bullpen. NO EXCUSES.
