Open Saturday Topic: From today until ... well, the 28th of September
Continuing a brilliant idea I had last weekend, rather than slave over the blog on a day in which I should be sleeping in, I thought I'd open a topic of discussion to y'all. (Yes, I said "y'all." I know what you're thinking, but my poll numbers tell me that people think it's folksy and it makes me seem less elitist.)
The Cubs are playoff bound, and, barring a catostrophic disaster, they will have homefield advantage throughout the NL portion of the post season. Therefore, everything they do from this point forward is basically window dressing.
With that in mind, I'd like to open this question to the GROTA Army: if you're Lou Piniella, how do you handle your regulars from here on out? Do you bench them entirely, or do you start them daily to keep them loose? Do you turn to a starting rotation consisting of fresh-faced youngsters who are still a few years removed from the ability to grow a luxurious beard, or do you keep your pitching staff intact albiet perhaps with a few restrictions?
Post your thoughts in the comments. Or, hell, write up a Reader Blog. Either way, enjoy your Saturday, my friends.
