Do you want pitchers to have healthy arms or do you want some post season action?
I think we disagree on Paul Wilson also. (See my signature.)
While I agree that pitchers are babied a little too much, going to a 4-man rotation is not a good option. Harang is a horse, he might be able to do it. Arroyo has a rubber and could probably do it. But EZ is gradually pitching worse and may be getting a little tired. I don't think he could handle it. Plus, Milton pitching on short rest. Yikes!
I believe Krivsky will add another starter. He has to.
By the way, Wilson will not be up here ASAP and will not help the Reds this year. He got roughed up badly the other day and is going to try to strengthen his arm once again before pitching again. That pretty much ends his chances of joining the Reds this year.
