Harang's ERA will probably never again drop below 5.00, and yet they continue to run him out there on a prayer and wing.
Harang hasn't pitched that well, but it's not mystifying that they want to know if he can come back. He's also earned the opportunity with the way he's pitched in the past. They have him on a pretty short leash so I really don't get all the complaining; he's not the one who gave up the last six runs yesterday.
Also, my guess is the plan is to use up Wood's innings now, then replace him with Leake for the end of the season and hopefully the playoffs. I do not think Travis Wood will be available for the postseason.
