The Replacements

June 11, 1995

Some of the game's biggest stars have been knocked out by injuries. Nobody really thinks their subs are going to play starring roles, but not all replacements are created equal.

Replacement ... ... ... Filling In For .. .. .. .. Comment

Alex Diaz ... ... .. .. Ken Griffey, Jr. .. ... .. Not much power, not

.. ... .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... ... .. much of a hitter. Not much.

Steve Scarsone ... ... Matt Williams ... .. .. .. He admits that he can't

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... ... .. play third, or first,

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... ... or anywhere, really. But

.. .. .. ... .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. he's not that bad of a hitter.

Reggie Jefferson .. .. Jose Canseco .. .. ... .. Jefferson is doing

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... .. such a good job that

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... .. .. .. .. .. .. .. the Red Sox need a way

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... .. to keep him in the lineup.

Jeff Branson .. .. ... Barry Larkin .. .. .. Kind of a scrappy utility

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. guy who can do just about

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. anything - other than make an

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. impact.

Craig Paquette .. .. Rickey Henderson .. .. .. The O's killer.

Rob Nen .. .. .. ... Bryan Harvey .. .. ... .. Throws the heck out

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... ... of the ball. Just

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... ... doesn't throw it over the

.. .. .. .. .. ... ... .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. plate too often.
