I believe that this weekend we will start shrinking the ST roster so the top pitchers can start getting increased innings of work. It’s only two weeks left from this upcoming weekend until we are down to the 25-man roster plus a few more for the exhibition games just before the season opener. I have been impressed with the youngsters that it makes me wonder if we have too many good starters, a good problem to have.
