We already know that Matt is gone for the playoffs and I am going to assume that we are being kept in the dark by the Dodgers and that Andre Ethier’s injury is worse than we know. I am going to assume that the Dodgers won’t carry a pinch hitter who can’t play the field and that Andre will miss the playoffs entirely. I hope I’m wrong, but I smell it!
That may open the door to Dee Gordon who didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell a few days ago…
As I mentioned earlier, the Dodgers still have Ramirez, Gonzalez and Puig who are all Big Stage hitters, but the junkyard dogs will play a role too. Who will rise to the occasion? What’s your prediction?
Hint: My vote goes to Skip Schumaker!
P.S. Dusty Baker will be fired!
