But he is not going to start as long as Dusty is the manager here.
Since Bob C seems to view him like The Czar's family viewed Rasputin...Dusty may never leave until he wants to leave or their is a revolt in the FO.
So you waste someone by throwing them for 1 inning only....only with a lead and hardly ever in anything else....when you could have Broxton or Hoover or even Marshall do the same thing....just not as flashy.
