Riverbrian Old-Timey Member Posted October 19, 2022 Share Posted October 19, 2022 I posted this elsewhere but want the topic. You should change your underwear because you never know when you get caught with your pants down. If you keep specialists on your roster. What happens when you need them to be much more than what they are? Every. Single. Year. Injuries. Happen. If someone is on your 26 man roster, they can't be hid because injuries are going to bring them into the light and you will NEED THEM. It happens every. single. year. Every year... injuries are going to pull your pants down. Change your underwear because the whole world will see that specialist if you don't. Gilbert Celestino was a defensive specialist. His hitting wasn't good. We knew his hitting wasn't good and we knew that Buxton wasn't healthy by the trade deadline. You are screwed when you need your defensive specialist to be a hitter because your hitters have gone away. Max Kepler is a defensive specialist. His hitting makes him a defensive specialist. He defends but doesn't hit. That makes him a defensive specialist for two years now. Needing Kepler to be a hitter because your other hitters have gone away is too much to ask and too much to expect. Kyle Garlick was a specialist that was only allowed to face left handed hitting. You are screwed when you need Garlick to quickly digest right handers after starving him for years, needing to do it in September during a pennant chase is complete lack of prep for the possibility. Placing a player in a short side platoon is not prepping someone for September. We knew what Celestino and Garlick were at the trade deadline. The trade deadline is the last day that you can change your underwear. We didn't have a belt.
