    To predict each starter's ERA at the end of the season, you can probably flip-flop the respective starter's ERA coming into today. Blanton's ERA will probably be around 3.95, and Owings @ 6.00.

    Wow, Owings already pulled. Ramirez gets the call here in the 4th.

    Ramon Ramirez is in to replace Owings.

    Wow. Blanton punks Rosales on 3 pitches. Anyone still think EE should be required to "take back" third from Rosales?

    Because its MLB, and on a day to day basis, you just never know. Its why betting on baseball is just downright silly.

    I wonder what that does to Saturday's starter? Bailey? Maloney? or someone else?

    So if Volquez can't go Saturday, somebody new has to come from AAA. Bailey or Maloney. I'm guessing Maloney.

    Who gets sent out? Could be Ramirez sent right back down to AAA. Or it could be Lincoln for some long toss DL time.

    Or Volquez could just go on the DL to make room for the new guy.

    It's like choosing between a Dart and Gremlin. Me, I'll take someone altogether different at third.

    yes, in retrospect Dusty shouldn't have pitched him, but it's not the crime of the century.
    I'm not going to claim that today's outing is proof that Owings should have been rested. Philly's tough on anybody, especially a righty with borderline stuff like Owings has. But I will say that I am not surprised by what has happened.

    My main objection is that the entire starting rotation could have been set up better from today through Saturday. And the BP could have been fortified by disabling Volquez and bringing up Fisher or another penner. They were short-staffed while Massett was hurt and still active, and they're right back to the same situation now because they're going to "wait and see" with Volquez. To me, it's a pattern of inaction, and I find it, if not the crime of the century, somewhat incriminating of the team's management.

    Rosales is a great idea for a utility infielder, which he was projected all along. Daily, he just isn't good enough.

    This seems most likely. He went into Dusty's office today after 2 pitches and said he couldn't go anymore.

    Except that the Reds are apparently morally opposed to the DL.
