    Who do you think will start the year as our 5th starter?

    Who do you think will start the year as our 5th starter? I see all of these guys getting starts as injuries begin to happen but, who will get the lion's share of starts this year?

    I see the fifth starter being Micah Owings. I hate to say it, but him being the centerpiece of the trade involving Dunn automatically means that he will be given every oppertunity to prove himself. He is a good pitcher, with a good fastball, and some good off-speed pitches.

    Now if the question was "Who Should Start the Year as the Fifth Starter?" Then I would go with Daryll Thompson. He has an electric fastball, and two nasty off-speed pitches. His change is already MLB quality, and his curve is very good.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Everyone feel free to answer the question in this fashion if they like. Throw in a part 2 to your thread submission and say who you think would perform at the highest level as a SP in the 5th spot.

    I would like to see Homer Bailey earn the role.

    I put in Ramon, although I think it's a tossup between he and Owings. I got to see Ramon pitch this past year, and I was impressed with the potential.

    I think it's Owings to lose. What a problem to have though, both Ramirez and Thompson are looming.

    I think Owens has to be the favorite going in if he's healthy.

    Who do I think or who do I want? I want Owings as the 5th starter but have a feeling it will be Bailey.

    I'm guessing it will be Owings, but I'm still holding out that there's a chance that Homer comes out this spring and is lights out down in Florida. I'm still not ready to write him off completely.

    I still think something might happen with the Giants in Spring training. Depends on what Lowry, EE, Franciso, Alonso and and the pitchers mentioned in the poll. So I will say Lowry or Sanchez. How about that for a answer

    people are all over bailey.

    Do you guys realize how bad Micah Owings was last year? He's going to be horrid in our ballpark.

    How about taking a minor league deal with Mulder for another arm in the 5th starter mix.

    Owings will have the job but if he blows it they have 3 other guys-Thompson, ramirez, and Bailey. So hopefully one of these guys is good.

    Starting out of the gate I think it will be Owings. but I think it will be a tight race between him, Bailey, and Ramirez with Ramirez getting the final nod.

    Thompson has the best stuff, but has consistently shown to be fragile. It's Owings to lose it, or Homer/Ramirez to win it.
