Four man rotation. 75 pitch counts. Losses. Seems like another Summer in Rox Land.
The Rox are trying to reinvent the wheel on a grand game that has only been going on for 150 plus years. This wheel needs to be ripped off and tossed in the junk yard.
Yes Jeremy Guthrie is a dud (if they trade him to Toronto does his ERA face the exchange rate and get even bigger?) and needs to go to the pen, but replace him in the rotation. You see, baseball is a funny game, and for the last generation every successful team has used five dudes as their starters. Get any average Joe from the minors, from an independent team, from some other team's scrap heap. Hell, call Tatum Bell at the cell phone kisosk and get him.
Yet the brass (a loose term when describing the Rox front office, a more apt term would be a few rungs down on the precious metals table. 'Dull aluminum'?) at 20th and Blake thinks four guys on a 75 pitch limit is the answer? 75 pitches will do wonders for the development of young pitchers who are trying to get into the flow of a MLB season.
The Purp will claim the new four man rotation is out of necessity. They have the wrong "ity" as it is obviously out of stupidity.
