It's not like any of us know whether he's good enough to go or not.
I find it impossible to believe that he is 100% ready to go after obviously dealing with this for the last month+ of the season, and having to come out of game 2 48 hours ago because of it. There is zero guarantee it won't flare up in the 2nd inning tonight. He should know that a healthy Janish is better than whatever he is right now, and shouldn't put his manager in this situation.
