    Great. Start a thread about that instead of chiding people for wanting to talk about a playoff berth that is incredibly likely. Are you afraid that the baseball gods are going to smite us for our hubris?

    Would Swisher be the DH?

    yes. either that or granderson. and let's not forget that dickerson can actually hit LHP. I think this would be the best use of resources. i dont want ibanez near the field, even if it's batting. thank Jones for that small tear he went on. Chavez can PH/3B replacement. If Gardner can swing, bench Feast or Famine.

    Against RHP, I'd rather start Chavez than Dickerson.

    Dickerson in the OF. No need to put Ibanez out there.

    Battingly --

    Why would you need an extra pitcher in the bullpen (8 rather than the usual 7) during playoffs with off days? Teams, including the Yankees, do not do that. They take 11 pitchers at most.

    Nix will be on the roster. What if Cano gets injured, for instance? Nova won't be on the roster, absent an injury.

    Dickerson will be taken over Gardner.

    I assume you are right about Jones being left off in favor of both Nunez and Dickerson. At least I hope you are.

    Nix was sent back to NY for an MRI on his hip. There was talk during todays game, that Nix may be kept off of the roster due to that problem.

    I agree on the pitching (good call), so now I have us keeping both Gardner and Dickerson, but I have us keeping Nova and Eppley is the odd man out ... but you could be right, they might keep Eppley instead.

    I suspect Nix may be badly injured or they probably wouldn't send him back to NY for an MRI.

    I take Eppley over Nova

    dont overlook how atrocious Nova has been....he leads the league in extra base hits allowed (!)

    Re: 2012 Post-season roster speculation

    Sorry -- I was ignorant about Nix.

    If he is done, there could be more pressure on Nunez. But I guess that is not at the top of the Yankee concerns right now.

    Re: 2012 Post-season roster speculation

    Ibanez should be on the bench. Dickerson in the lineup.

    I can just imagine Girardis head exploding if they have to play the one game playoff.

    He has no-one to blame but himself.

    Resting one of his hottest hitters (Martin) with five games left and a one game lead (which is now officially gone), someone who hit a huge 2R homer the night before, because its a day game after a night game, like at this point rest is the priority and not winning the division?

    You can't manage these last five games like its June, like its business as usual.

    What he did today is criminal and IMO he should be fired for it if we lose this division, which now seem very likely.

    If we don't win the division, which is certainly possible, the only roster that will matter is our Game 163 roster.

    Nix is injured. Your omission of Dickerson is not only glaring, it's almost offensive.

    Based on his last two performances and his veteran savvy, I suspect Derek Lowe has pitched himself onto the PS roster.

    I think you're right. He is certainly higher in the pecking order than Garcia, and I think he has now passed Nova who may be left off in favor of Lowe and Phelps.
