Yeah no lineups have been posted through the usual channels yet.

I find it curious that a team based about 75 miles away from THE Mayo Clinic has had such trouble keeping a relatively young roster healthy. Sure, Cruz is old. But the roster besides him is pretty young. Young guys are supposed to heal faster.

Don't say that, even in jest!

It looks like a 5-inning contest tonight ... (39% chance of rain after 9 pm, 76% after 10, 72% after 11.)

From a season perspective, it seems like this is more an issue of lots of injuries *at the same time* than one of lots of injuries *overall*. This team was remarkably healthy (especially the pitchers) until about mid-August, and now we have everyone going down together.

 

In some ways, this is more of a challenge because instead of outfielder #4 seeing regular action as #1, #2, and #3 are out one at a time, we are now seeing outfielders #6 and #7 in the lineup every day, because #1 (Buxton), #2 (Kepler), #4 (Cave), and #5 (Gonzalez) are all out at the same time.

 

Although it's brutal on us right now, it's helped us in the first 4 months. We might have 5 more wins at this point than we would have with a more normal pattern of injuries spread through the season. So instead of protecting a 5-game lead with a AAA lineup we'd be battling even-up with our usual stars.

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

How is it NOT up to the player?
 

If the player says they are feeling good and good to go, they should be in the lineup/on the field.
