Discussion Question for Friday:
The pitcher question we asked yesterday was very popular. . .lots of entries and ideas. So we'll ask a companion question today.
The bases are loaded. It is the bottom of the ninth inning. In the seventh game of the World Series. Your team is down by three runs. There are two outs. The opposing pitcher is a healthy Eric Gagne. The hitter on deck is Neifi Perez. You can't pinch-hit for him.
You can take one hitter out of the minor leagues to hit against Gagne in this situation, with the world championship on the line, the bases loaded, two outs, and Neifi on deck. Caveat: the player you pick cannot have exceeded rookie qualifications.
