Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
I confess, I'm a bit shocked at this. Not that Paul Janish made the Braves postseason roster; I was expecting that. Not even that Uggla was left off. He's not a fit for the bench, and Fredi Gonzalez has clearly lost faith in him as a starter. No, what's really surprising is that the Braves are going with just 5 infielders. Janish will be the only backup infielder on the bench.
This is almost unheard of for the post-season. It will limit Fredi's opportunities to pinch hit, and if anyone gets injured or ejected, he's basically screwed.
I guess they figured with a short series - only 5 games - they're willing to take the risk. Still...wow.
