The Brewers brought up a significant number of minor league players to fill up the roster for September.
You all know them, but here they are again:
Gamel, Escobar, & Salome come from AA. Rottino, Gwynn, Brad Nelson (HA!), Joe Dillon, DeFilice, Dillard, & Stetter come from AAA.
Look at the list of these guys, and then look at the current Brewers roster. Then think of the situation the Brewers are in.
With the exception of Stetter, do you think any of these guys are going to have any significant impact on the games in September or the Postseason?
The answer is no.
Oh sure...DeFilice might get some mop up work. Escobar might give JJ a break 1 or 2 games in the 9 inning when we're up by 6 runs. Gamel & Nelson might get 6 or 7 at bats each.
We'll talk about Stetter possibly on the postseason roster some other time. But none of the other guys have a chance. Does anybody honestly think that after a playoff push, with the team playing great, with basically the same guys all year, with the team making the playoffs for the first time in 26 years that Ned Yost would let those same guys not get most of the playing time down the stretch? Does anybody think that Ned Yost would leave one of those guys off the playoff roster?
Not gonna happen people. The September call ups don't mean much this year. Enjoy the buffet and one-sixth of the major league minimum fellas...and enjoy the ride.
