Of Rosenberg, Hirsch and Stern, which is more likely to get some MLB time this year?

Josh Borenstein said...

Good question. Probably Rosenberg, IMO. The Phillies need to rebuild their bullpen. I think the Yankees will use Gaudin, Chamberlain, and Hughes again for their fifth starter. It's possible Hirsh could get a spot start or two. He's better than Mitre, that's for sure. If Stern makes the club, he'll primarily be used as a late inning defensive replacement and a pinch runner.

Thinking about doing a list of preseason top major league Jewish players?

Josh Borenstein said...

Hadn't planned on it. If I made a list right now, Youkilis would be #1. His glove puts him over the top. But moving forward, Braun is the clear choice.
