Re: Lidle traded
Good analysis, Doc.
Now, who slots into Lidle's old spot:
Acevedo back into the rotation to see if he just needed a rest?
Hudson up from AAA to see if he's really learned to throw strikes?
Rose up from AA to see if he's real -- requiring adding him to the roster?
Hancock back to a starting role, auditioning for 2005?
Etherton up from AAA, including adding him to the 40-man?
The thing I like is whoever goes into Lidle's slot gets some exposure in August instead of just September, when rosters are filled with AAA callups and most of the competition is playing out the string. The wheels continue to turn...
