But again, I'm not talking about keeping Mez over Gus or saying I don't want to trade him. If both are on the team and under the cap, cap hits are irrelevant. If Mez is making $8 million or if Mez is making $800k, he is still better. He may get injured, yes. I agree. But that doesn't mean you don't play him. If he is healthy, play him. If he gets hurt, Gus plays. If not, Mez plays the full 82 and Gus fills in when other players go down or when he proves he is better he will take over for Mez.
