I think we need to pick one game this series to basically punt and give some guys a breather. Either tomorrow night with short-rest Wacha or the day game on Thursday. Gotta get a little rest in before we hit the road. I would rather sacrifice one game and rest up than play ourselves into the ground and really stumble on the road trip.

I guess this is our everyday lineup now, I don't hate it.

Why not give Cabrera a shot tomorrow? He's stretched out and struck out 12 in seven shutout innings his last start for Memphis on the 24th. If they're punting anyway . . .

He is most likely the long man out of the pen tomorrow. Wacha will probably go three or four innings at most so its essentially a bullpen game.

Cabrera's been awful other than that game though. And was awful when called up last time. And the team he faced, Omaha, is also historically bad this year.

We shouldn't be "punting" any game against a trending-bad team like the Giants. To beat MadBum you just make him throw a lot of pitches and get to that bad bullpen of theirs. They don't have Moronta so they should be a lot worse than normal too. Giants have the 29th worst bullpen since trading Dyson.

Agreed. We have a 3 game lead in September with 7 left against the 2nd place team. Now is the time to stomp on throats.
