I'm seeing the rotation out of ST as
With Affleldt in the pen, and Bailey and Cueto starting out the season in Louisville.
Bailey may need to improve his control, but that doesn't mean he's going to do that in the minors. He clearly has the stuff to make it in the majors right now, even if that's the number four or five slot. I'd hate to see his confidence get shot by sending him up and down.
This is what I think will happen
Remember, this is Dusty and Dusty doesn't like young guys.
