4/06 Off Day
4/11 5th Starter
4/16 5th Starter
4/19 Off Day
4/24 5th Starter
4/26 Off Day
5/01 5th Starter
5/06 Off Day
5/11 5th Starter
5/13 Off Day
5/18 5th Starter
5/23 ....and so on...
Of course, 1 Rain Out and everything changes. Trying to predict any scenario is fruitless.
Guess we do need a 5th Starter right out of the gate. I'm guessing that the 5th Starter will be between who pitches best in Spring Training among Owings, Wood, Maloney and Lehr. I can't see anyone else even being considered. I'll put my hat in the Owings ring...that he'll pitch the best this Spring.
Kip Wells? Mike Lincoln:ughmamoru? Personally, I think Maloney and Wells should be the only candidates. They are just holding the spot until Chapman has put in enough time to keep his contract from escalating.
Not only do I think Owings should be in the pen, I can actually see him becoming a pretty solid middle reliever down there. Maybe a guy in the mix for the 7th inning in a close game.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
