Tate vs Foster Jones vs Walter Daniels vs Dressen Sharpton vs Demeco Jackson vs Allen Nolan vs Manning Jamison vs Smith Reed/Barwin vs Williams Mitchel vs Cody Why does this team keep answering the bell? Why do they not miss a beat when they experience injury after injury after injury? Why is that next man "ready" to go? (with the exception of Shilo Keo who we went out & found a replacement for)... I think it's competition. The same thing that made Cushing DROY (twice).... he's always had healthy competition with Demeco & they've both been among our best players. Now Tate & Foster has their thing going. What if that competition is all over our roster? What if that is the difference between these Texans & last year's Texans? We're not starting rookies that haven't earned it. I mean Cushing & Demeco started as well as any rookie I've ever seen, but that doesn't happen all the time, to come in & make an impact at MLB, or the kind of impact Brian has had. Competition.
