The team strenghths thus far have really been the starting pitching followed by the bullpen. However, I really feel as though the bench really hasnt gotten the credit it deserves. First off, BA has been very solid off the bench. He has accepted his role and has developed in to a very nice 4th Outfielder with potential to be a starter once again down the road. Toby Hall has been good and really terrorized Laffey the last time he faced him. Ozuna is the same as he's always been. He might not be hitting quite as good as he has in the past, however he isnt getting nearly the at bats off the bench as normal. Thus far, I've been extremely pleased with our production from the bench and feel like we have a lot of quality there. Thoughts?
