Andre Ethier isn't in the lineup for the Dodgers today. It's the top of the eighth as I write this and the Cubs lead 5-1. So the question: What if the Dodgers rally in the next two innings, or get a bunch of guys on base, and the pitcher's spot is due up and Carlos Marmol is pitching for the Cubs?
Do you pinch-hit Ethier and risk ending his hitting streak with an 0-for-1?
Or did Don Mattingly simply decide, "I'm going to play him today, no matter what, even if it means I have to suit up and hit myself?"
Place your vote. I'm curious to see what the masses think.
