    Loshe to start Sunday

    Lohse will start Saturday

    Well, it's official. Kyle Lohse will get the ball Saturday afternoon against the Braves. There's nothing wrong with Brandon Claussen physically, it's strictly a "baseball decision," according to Narron.

    Claussen's rehab clock runs out next week, and he says he feels fine, so it'll be interesting to see what they do with him. He said no one has approached him about the possibility of sliding into a long-relief role.

    I don't get why they used him for 21 pitches in a blowout last night if they were thinking of starting him Saturday.

    They still have not announced Saturday. James is starting Friday and Smoltz on Sunday for the Braves.

    My guess is they wanted to see what he had before giving him a start.
    It probably would have been best to not let him pitch to Saturday since he hasnt started for a while.

    ESPN site says Jason Shiell is starting for the Braves Saturday. He has an ERA over 6. This looks like a 10-9 game on Saturday.

    As long as we're the 10, I'm fine with that.

    I knew it.

    Too much use of the phrase "roster flexibility" to believe that Lohse would strictly be a reliever.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    they didn't trade for him just for that. Although if Claussen had pitched well on Monday night he likely would have gotten the Saturday start. When he got shelled it made their decision easy.

    Probably because they had an idea he was going to pitch Saturday. So getting him some work in a NL game. Also that gives him 3 days rest so that may be the reason for just an inning worth of work out of him. When the deal happened it was insurance incase Claussen didn't pitch well on Monday. Also either way it bolsters the bullpen. With Claussen never ever pitching in relief his whole career.. that may move him back into the rotation and bump Lohse. However.. I wonder if Elizardo struggles, if they might plug Lohse in and have Elizardo come out of the pen.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later. Might as well get it out of the way now. Besides, the Braves can't be too familiar with him. I don't expect too much, but lightning can strike in such situations.

    Too bad Belisle's hurt. I like him better than any of the other options we're seeing.
