Nevertheless, Guillen said he would take his chances with his current squad heading into 2010. “I don’t know if we’re going to live with this team next year, but if this is opening day, yes. We win the division if this was opening day. When you got (Alex) Rios, (Jake) Peavy, Freddy (Garcia) throwing well, (Gordon) Beckham playing well, we got a good club. Yes we do.”
Not to mention benching Alex Rios in favor of Dewayne Wise or Scott Podsednik 2 times a week. BTW, Wise wants a chance to get 400 or 500 at-bats in a season.
