    One interesting thing about the 2007 bunch: many of the overexposed bench contributors were on the wrong side of 30 (Miles, Taguchi, Spiezio, Cairo, both backup catchers). This year’s bench has been younger and more productive, although I still fear overexposure with a lot of them. That bench was also more expensive than the current bench (Schu not withstanding), with several guys earning more than the standard pre-arbitration youngster.

    So I definitely think overexposure is a concern, but there are reasons to be a lot more optimistic about the 2012 fill-ins than the 2007 model. I must admit, though, that lineups featuring Sugar Shane, “The Bachelor: the Second Base Edition”, and Matt Adams trouble me. I’ve long felt that having one position that is unsettled or well below par isn’t a problem, but multiple unsettled positions can sink a team in so many ways.
