September call ups

Say you are given the power to decide who gets called up for the expanded September rosters.  We are desperate for W's, so your decisions are crucial.  Who do you call up?  

I say:

  • Kendry Morales.  He's been absolutely killing the ball since being sent down (batting .333).  I'm hoping he will have a similar experience to that of Howie Kendrick - struggled in his first stint in the bigs, was sent down to work on some things, and comes back up refreshed and ready to mash.
  • Jeff Mathis.  He's hit a very respectable .298 in AAA this year and would provide us with another backstop should we need to pinch run for Nap or Molina, neither of whom are fleet of foot.  
  • Greg Jones.  We need bullpen help, badly.  He hasn't been overly impressive in AAA this year but ask yourself this - can he possibly be worse than Kevin Gregg or JC Romero?
  • Curtis Pride.  This one's an obvious choice for me.  He has proven he can come through when we need him.  Not to mention he has good speed and nice defense.  He'd be a nice option to replace GA in LF in the later innings of games we are ahead.
  • So who do you guys think should get the call?
