    Basic question re: our starting rotation

    I'm not paying enough attention or the heat has killed my brain...are we operating on a four-man rotation? mlb.com has probable pitchers listed as Milton Tuesday, then back to Harang and Arroyo Wednesday and thursday respectively...what's going on with Mays or is it just because of the day off? This has probably been discussed but I missed it...thanks.

    Mays will be the swing man until Claussen is ready. Say what you will about vets but they are probably a bit for versatile when you need to keep your roster options open.

    I know we really don't have anyone to take Joe Mays spot in the rotation, but it is incredibly hard to believe he is still on the team. Put Germano or Gosling, or anyone in there for a start or two. Then Claussen will be back or we'll have someone else via a trade. Pitching Mays again would be just like forfeiting. You just can't afford to throw away games and putting Mays is in there does just that.
