Never thought at season’s start that giving Hamilton his days off would be a big deal. This young man is becoming an impactful star both offensively and defensively. Hopefully he won’t be needed to be a difference maker in the late innings today

to young to have a day off…every game matters!

Trust me … keeping Hamilton fresh and avoiding potential leg injuries which comes often from overdoing it … is fine. I much prefer an occasional day off over him wearing down and possibly injuring himself. That’s what Schumaker is for. He’s still a solid player … that is good at playing several times a week. or slightly more … if need be. It’s not like playing Bernadina or some other stiff. It’s a long season guys … players get days off … it’s ok. If we’re playing Milwaukee or St. Louis … then I always want our best guys in there if healthy … otherwise giving your starters an occasional day off if fine.
