Hey, just because it didn’t work before, doesn’t mean it won’t this time.

And I suggest the rotation be the gang from VFTB. We would provide balance (not too nasty, not too soft) youth and experience – at living! If we needed a Lee Elia moment, Mastrick is our man. Otherwise, Dave seems a natural to cover us with the media.

We are all motivated and have a true appreciation for the history of this organization. Some of us would regularly start the kids and none of us I know of mind the bases getting clogged up. I’d even let Prior and Wood clean the uniforms after the game (since Yosh is retired).

I think we should try it for a month anyway. OK, two months, 10 games for each writer. At the end we could come back with a healthy dose of reality and admit it’s tougher than it looks from our lofty perch.
