    Yes, I know for sure high schools do it. The only problem is that if Owings were to be taken out, that pitcher would be assigned a spot in the batting order, correct?

The bullpen gave up that runner plus 4 more that inning & 3 more later. Owings will be ok. He just didn't throw enough strikes. In my opinion, he was trying to throw that perfect pitch every time instead on throwing a good pitch. As I stated before, Owings will be just fine. By the way, Homer hasn't set the International League on fire.
    After yesterday's game (yes, I was in attendance, I think we would take this output from Owings every time.

    I think Owings is a great addition to the team.

    He definitely brings something to the 5th spot in the rotation that we've been missing.

    Owings is a solid number 5 for the most part and if you figure in his bat you actually have a pretty good ball player.

    Way to go negative Nelly. Dan Haren had an e.r.a. below 2.00 starting the game and Owings had an e.r.a. over 5.00.

    Stop with the negativity. Great effort by Owings and the small-ball philosophy.

    Owings' ERA just dropped about one-tenth of a run lower than Volquez.

    We should get rid of this bum Volquez.

    Hasnt "that" team been us the last several years, either with hitting or pitching, we have been that team that people arent impressed if they beat us. I am enjoying not being that team now!

    Honestly he should be the 4th spot guy. Arroyo the 5th spot guy. That is what Arroyo was in Boston and should be. The guy who tries to mop up a bad series, or tries to battle against another 5 spot guy. People can figure out the breaking balls much easier it seems lately.

    I'm not sure it matters at this point who's the 4 and who's the 5. Its not like 4's only pitch against other 4's and so on. At this point in the season anyone could pitch against anyone, like last night when our "5" beat Arizona's "1".

    American League DH rules dictate that only the pitcher can have a DH.
