    Michalak isn't making the Sunday start.

    I don't know if anyone had mentioned this anywhere yet, but the Reds game notes from last night had Michalak starting against Woody Williams in the Sunday finale of the Pads series. In today's notes though, they now have Milton listed.

    I am not trying to insinuate anything, merely stating what I have seen.

    They've been talking about going to a four man rotation with all of the off days coming up. This certainly isn't the least bit surprising and probably would have happened regardless of how he pitched yesterday.

    As if people needed anymore reason to speculate on the near future of Homer Bailey.....

    Thank God, we are spared from seeing Michalek pitch in SD. Let's hope he gets moved out of the rotation permanently. If so, last night's loss wasn't totally in vain.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Put me on a list of people that never want to see Michalak pitch for us ever again on the 25 man roster in any capacity.

    I saw him make that emergency appearance in Philly, and I knew then he had no value to this team. I'm surprised we gave him the ball for a few more starts, but I guess if Dave Williams can get starts for this club, why not Chris Michalak, right?

    If my options are 5 man with Michalak, 4 man, or 5 man with Bailey, let's be sensible and go with the 4 man.

    If they continue to skip the 5th spot in the rotation, there will only be need of a 5th starter five more times this season.

    I think it is more likely the end of Michalak is a 5th starter isn't needed until Tuesday the 5th.

    If the Reds are going to call up Homer, and I'm not saying I think they will (although I do ), I'd like to see them give Homer an appearance or two out of the bullpen before his first start.

    san diego would be a perfect place for homer to make his first start. it is a big time pitcher's park, and i think he would succeed.

    That would be dangerous, IMO. He didn't pitch as well last year in Dayton during his relief turns in the piggyback system, and I don't think you do anything to take him out of his comfort zone. Let him start, let him stay on the same schedule and let him go after guys just as he has been. Don't change the routine unless you absolutely have to.
