Don’t panic — Jay Hey was scheduled to sit today. B-Mac, who’s struggled mightily this September, also gets a breather.
No rest for Freddie, who’s started 57 of the last 58 games. “I’m a first baseman and I’m 24 years old, I don’t think that’s a problem,” he told DOB.
Gotta love that.
And you gotta love the way Med Dog has been pitching. He may be pitching his way into a Game 1 start in the NLDS, when the line-up behind him is sure to be better than today’s:
Simmons 6, JUpton 9, Freeman 3, CJohnson 5, Gattis 7, Laird 2, Uggla 4, BUpton 8, Medlen 1
