More on the bench of doom. I got my copy of the Bill James Handbook today and came upon the manager comparason section. Melvin was 13th out of the 14 AL teams in pinch hitter usage (74 PH's, he beat Hargrove's O's by one). As I said earlier, even he knew his bench could not hit. And this year's bench looks to be even worse. If they're not going to be used, why not just bring up some career AAA guys and pay them the minimum. The frightening thought is that they are just one injury away from becoming regulars. The team has no depth and it will be a scary year.
