I figured I would start a thread on this, because it tends to derail the GDTs and the trade thread whenever it comes up and it's an interesting debate.
We have a handful of regulars injured, and their replacement players are doing an excellent job filling in, hence the current winning streak.
So, who goes when Reyes comes back is a tough decision in its own, but then who goes when Lawrie is back, or when Morrow and Happ return?

When Reyes comes back, the most plausible situation is either remove Kawasaki or Boni, or send down a reliever. When Lawrie gets back, one of Boni or Kawasaki has to go, or Lawrie stays in AAA. Then when Mortow returns, either Wang or Rogers moves to the pen, and another pen arm goes. The same goes for Happ, unless Happ stays in AAA or goes to the pen. Could we see someone traded, like Boni or Oliver? Someone like Lawrie or Happ kept in AAA?
What do you guys think?
Thole, Davis, DeRosa, Kawasaki or Boni
