Not only that, Lyon Richardson is also probably ahead of Roa as a starting candidate.

    I would, however, love to see if Roa can transform into an effective late-inning relief pitcher. He and Stoudt might be interesting in that role-- but they first have to be put in that role.
    I was thinking this year.

    So... our friend Joe Boyle got the start for Oakland against the Padres. At this writing he's through 3 with no runs and a very Boyle like line of 3IP, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts on 59 pitches. That said, it looks like his stuff is playing out OK against a decent lineup. His biggest enemy is himself.

    His "stuff" is excellent, his command has always been the question.

    Quick heads up: Chattanooga will be playing tonight in GM 1 of their playoff series with Tennessee. The action begins at 7 PM. It will be free to watch on MILB.com. That is EDT.

    Good to hear.
