The Rox are on track for all kinds of new lows for the record books in the pitching department. Not only that, they are well on their way to the worst home record in franchise history starting off 0-2 against cellar dweller Friars. The test will be coming very soon for the front office to make some changes (or not). The available options while keeping the future pitchers down in the system for further development are David Hale, Eddie Butler, Shane Carle, Yohan Flande, Jeff Hoffman, Simon Castro, Carlos Estevez, Sam Moll, and Gonzalez Germen. Find a blister or a pulled muscle and put everyone who are out of options on the DL.
My suggestion: just go piggyback system and have all starters go four innings and the converted starters (to long relief) go three innings. Let Boone Logan, Jake McGee, Miguel Castro, and Jason Motte take care of the last three innings.
Looks like a Sunday lineup with Tony Wolters behind the dish and Ben Paulsen subbing for Mark Reynolds. Wolters has a great opportunity go show if he can upgrade game calling skills over Nick Hundley.
