Give the kids a chance to play. I know new young blood always helps a team this time of year.

Given the dearth of starting pitching, I want Duensing to succeed as a starter. He's been successful before so I don't see why he can't be successful again. Finding a lefty reliever (to replace Duensing) is a lot easier than finding an above-average starter as we have seen.
I liked what I saw of Florimon in ST. He's got nice tools and I think he might even have a bit of power if he established that he can make contact.
I also liked Fien in Florida. He does have a live arm and throws pretty hard. He seems to be an extreme fly ball type, but his results have been very good so far. It looks to me like he has a position to lose in next year's bullpen.
