As of right now, my bench is (insert random backup catcher here), Maxwell (4OF), Dyson (pr/ Def CF), and Valencia (if Moose sucks), and I'd ask Escobar to do his best Cal Ripken Jr impersonation for the first 2 months. He played 158 games last year and 158 games 3 years ago, so he apparently doesn't need much rest. Injuries or something will happen at some point to open up a spot to temporarily shuttle Ciriaco or someone up and down to rest him later. If Moose looks good, we can probably trade or cut Valencia loose for a true UTIL later.

edit: woops, Ciriaco has no options. Unless he accepts a minor league assignment, we may have to figure out whether Moose can do it quicker than I thought.

edit2: Infante is nowhere near the horse Escobar is. We may have to have a backup middle infielder to start the season. I seriously doubt we'll start with 11 pitchers, so I dunno.
