    Mays to be skipped in rotation

    Harang had about as rough a two innings as heís had all year, giving up two in the first and two in the second to put the Reds in a 4-0 hole.

    Thereís possibility the Reds will shuffle their rotation to have Eric Milton pitch Saturday and Harang pitch in Miltonís spot Sunday. That would mean skipping Joe Mays.

    Even though Milton pitches earlier, this is still a good idea. I am hoping Mays will be gone next roster move. He is dead weight right now, if they were going to use him at all - you would have figured last night would have been when they would have done it. Time to call someone else up from AAA.

    Last time we did this both Harang and Arroyo lost their starts.

    I prefer 4-5 innings of Mays + BP than continuing to screw around like this.

    A big reason for this I would think would be with the bullpen almost entirely used last night, Mays available today in case. Hopefully we don't need him. (Ever again)

    Well, hopefully Arroyo can go 7. Majewski didn't pitch last night and should be available to pitch an inning. Eddie will always pitch whenever needed. Mays should never be available unless we are behind 10-0.

    The Royals cut Mays earlier this year. That was all we needed to know about his talent.

    If this happens (it's not a done deal as stated in the title), how does the rotation shake out for the Houston series?

    If this happens you would have Arroyo on Tuesday, Ramirez on Wednesday, and Milton on Thursday.

    Indeed, I'm thinking 1-2 more quality starts out of Joe and we can flip him for a AA stud who will be ready to win 25 in the bigs next season. Of course those would be 1-2 more quality starts than Mays has had in 3 years, but who's counting.

    Selfishly speaking, I really hope they skip Mays. We have tickets for Saturday.
