Owings #5 Starter.
Bailey #6 Starter.
Is Masset the #7 starter or is Thompson, or someone else, and if so, does that push Thompson down to as low as the #9 starter and permanently in Louisville for 2009?
I'm perfectly alright with him spending half a season in the minors and building up more strength so he can become a 180-200 Inning pitcher in 2010 when he replaces Arroyo.
That said, it's very possible that he pitches so well at Louisville, that the team can't ignore him and will have to promote him in July.
