Closing in on a season defining fortnight, I have several questions about our beloved Naranja. Micheal D, Martek, and I discussed this ad naseum over lunch today. The answers, of course, will mean the difference between attending the playoffs possibly for the last time at Robertson Stadium and watching the playoffs from the depths of my couch (those that are actually broadcast on noncable TV).
If Ching does not score, who takes up the slack? (this has been an annual question for several seasons)
If Camargo gets significant minutes, who sits?
If not, how do we know if he's a keeper?
Must Cameron ALWAYS start? (hats off to DynaNole for that question)
Does Costly have to score and score big to earn a contract for next season?
Alternately, given Costly's lack of scoring production, does Bruin start in his place?
Where do Watson's comments put him, this year and next? See link
If we become mathematically ineligible for the postseason, should making roster decisions (giving players minutes to determine who stays and who goes) or results be the priority?
How many away wins do we need to get in the post-season party (rather than partying in the post season)?
What think you?
