NEOLeo wrote:I'm with Consig on this. Its one of those unwritten rules to not pinch hit for your regulars. You pinch hit for platoon guys, young guys, a fourth outfielder, utility guy making a start, etc.

NEOLeo wrote:Also, in those two times that Shoppach pinch hit this year, I'm willing to bet that either the bench was severely depleted by that point in the game, or Victor Martinez had already been lifted for a pinch runner and Shoppach was going to enter the game defensively anyway.
