    Maloney with a sinker and good GB rates would be awesome.

    If the current trend continues and Harang has to leave the rotation, I think that Maloney is the best candidate to replace him. Not because he's the best pitcher of the bunch at AAA--I'm really not sure who that would be--but because he best fits the profile. What they need from Harang's spot is innings. You can't count on Bailey and Cueto for a lot of innings, and it's too early to say about Leake--plus, you don't want to overwork a kid just out of college. The only other AAA pitcher who can rival Maloney in the innings department might be Lehr. But Maloney has a good chance to be more effective than Lehr. Plus, he's left-handed.

    If Harang leaves the rotation, he'd be an awesome set-up middle reliever. Might even be enough of a difference in that spot to earn most of his salary, in fact. (Though he'd have to be truly dominating to do that.)

    I could get behind a Maloney to the rotaton (assuming the sinker is for real) and Harang to the pen move.
