Oh, that's great.  Parrish is kneeling, Whitaker on the left, Trammell in the center.  But who is on the right?  Is it Lemon?

Doubleheader?  That doesn't mean they are bringing back VerHagen, does it?

Do they have Martinez play 1st in one of the games?

Yes I think that that is Chester.  Strength up the middle, you could call that photo.  They are all pretty young but Lou already has that weird pot belly.

Yeah, I remember an article in the newspaper or maybe one of the yearbooks about "strength up the middle plus one" and the plus one was Gibson.

Verhagen is not on the 40 man roster and is probably on waivers right now.

Also, I don’t think they get a 26th man for doubleheaders that are scheduled on such short notice.

Probably true.  McCant and Hicks each get a game behind the plate.  Candelario and Castellanos get both games.  Jones and Machado are young enough to handle it.  Iglesias might get a game off, so,.... oh man,.... a double shot of Niko today?

Happy Niko Day everyone.

Saw a discussion on twtter that suggested they could but logistics and need didn't support it.

They can all play both games.  They used to do it all the time when I was a kid.  These modern players are sissies.

I remember looking at this before. The normal 26th man rule does not apply if the doubleheader was a result of postponing the prior game. 

I just looked it up again. You can add the 26th man for game 2 in this situation, but not for both games.

I was being sarcastic.
