    Milton being skipped this weekend

    According to C. Trent's blog it looks like Milton will be skipped for at least this start this weekend. Harang will start Friday, Arroyo Saturday and TBA Sunday but it will probably be Lohse Sunday. The reason they are giving is all the right handed batters in Chicago's lineup.

    I'll take it. The less games Milton can pitch in the better.

    That is good news.

    I wonder if Milton will be available out of the bullpen in the interim. That way he will have the opportunity to earn a loss more frequently than every 5th game.

    I'd love to see Milton piggy back with Lohse or Belisle on his throwing day. Give him 3 innings after one of those guys has gone 5.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I can't wait for them to push back his next start because of too many lefties in the lineup.

    So he's not really being skipped. He's just being pushed back a couple of days, which also pushes Belisle back a day.
