Re: Will Baker Impede Progress?
Unfortunately, I haven't seen too much publically stated about the front office tightening the noose around the manager's neck regarding pitch counts and workload. Narron seemingly had free reign with the starters, and I'm guessing Dusty may have free reign too. And if that happens, it'll irritate the heck out of me.
I think some of the best hope in preserving the rotation is actually in Weathers, Coffey, and Burton. Weathers needs to still have something in the tank and not implode, Coffey needs to bounce back close to his 2006 form, and Burton needs to carryover his 2007 success into 2008. If those guys can form an effective trio in front of Cordero, it should hopefully make it easier to get a starter out of there before blowing his arm up.
