i mean, this is just ridiculous. we cant keep wheeling out rauch and parque every fifth game for an automatic L. Maybe Glover should be our new number 5. There's no way i see him giving up 10 runs in the first inning. Mike Cameron with 4 homers? Bret Boone with 2? come on, these are the guys who could barely muster anything against us the first two games, and now our #5 guys are making them look like friggen HR derby champions.

maybe we should go with a four man rotation? i know it'll put a strain on the starters, but we can't just forfeit every fifth game or pray for a miracle. not if we want to win the division.

I actually had Gary as one of the starters before things started taking shape this spring. I'd have no problem with him getting a shot.

I think Glover is a short term solution. He's really our setup guy. Anyway, KW better be looking hard for another SP. We're trying to contend here people! If he can pick up a #2 or #3 starter somewhere, we are set. unfortunately its easier said than done since I have no ideas for the time being.

Yeah, i definately think this is a sign that we need to get another SP... now if we can actually get a GOOD one and not some crappy innings eater, i think we'll be in great shape. but this remains to be seen...

As far as finding a No. 5 starter, could Rocky Biddle fill the bill?

I doubt he can right away
He's been throwing 4 innings max as far as i know
