Magic Number at 2 heading in to the weekend...
This of course leads to an even more pressing question....who's the answer at 3B this postseason? Platoon the likes of McGehee & Green, possibly even Josh Wilson? My feeling is that you stick with Casey and let give him the NLDS to prove himself. If he hasn't had a spark in his offense by the end of the 2 game homestand (against the Braves, in this scenario), then you scratch him for Green/Wilson platoon. My question, in hind sight, is why didn't Milwaukee just leave Mat Gamel at 3B? They had to have known that he would not be the answer at 1B next season when Prince Fielder leaves for SF or whereever he'll go. They should've kept Gamel where he is comfortable....if there is such a thing. I just don't think he'll be a contibutor at the big league level, especially if he's not at 3B.
