Something to Ponder

Here's a quick little thing to think about before Saint Stephen takes the mound against a bunch of minor leaguers and has-beens in St. Louis Cardinals uniforms tonight.

With Josh Willingham scratched tonight due to a sore neck, what would happen if, say his back started acting up early in the season requiring him to miss some time?  With Dukes kicked off the island, the Nats are already starting one outfielder that didn't necessarily fit into their plans at the start of spring training.

How would you like to watch a combo of Wee Willie Harris, Nyjer Morgan (hamstrings willing) and Justin Maxwell partol the outfield.

That's an awful lot of speed tracking down fly balls, but none have much of a throwing arm and there's absolutely no power to speak of.

Just something else to think about.  From the team that apparently can just throw away talented but enigmatic 25-year old outfielders.
