BLOG: Should Charlie Rest The Starters
By Lesley Van Arsdall
After it looked like Hunter Pence hurt himself in the 6th inning of today’s game against the Nationals, you have to ask, should Charlie be rest more of his starters.
Ok, so the only regulars in today’s game were Victorino and Pence.
Still, they have already clinched their 5th straight division title, home field advantage and are 4 games away from breaking the franchise record. (And with 9 games including tonight that shouldn’t be a problem)
The team needs some downtime … but there is such a thing as rest equals rust. It’s a tough call.
