13 pitchers has already arguably cost the Giants a game. They are headed into a very important series. To have a bench as limited as this one makes no sense.
Bring up Burriss. He can play defense and he can run. That gives you a speed/defense option late in the game. Sure would have been nice yesterday.
Or put another way - what do they lose in sending Bautista down and calling up another position player. i don't want another situation where Bochy has no options.
