Is he ready? I haven't seen/heard many ST games. From what I have heard about Schoenweiss, he scares the hell out of me. What about Grilli? OR Marte has expressed wanting to start...

Cotts is starting today or tomorrow. I think if he has a really good start than Shoeny could get bumped back the pen and Grilli could be back to the Fightin' Fish.

I'd rather see Rauch get first crack at the #5 starter slot. He was very solid down the stetch in Charlotte last year and is less prone to control problems than Cotts.

That said, he's already been optioned out to AAA, so of the guys still in camp Cotts is a pretty good choice.

If he's the alternative to Schoeneweis in the rotation, I'm all over it.

I'm just wondering, the Sox optioned Rauch to minor league camp sometime last week. Are there any restraints in bringing him back to the 25 man roster before camp breaks if the Sox decide to send Schoenwies down?

Hey guys, any room for me to jump on?

Not going to happen. The Sox would ideally like to have a lefty, making Cotts a logical choice IMO. With that said, it is disappointing that we may lose Grilli. If we can work out a trade to keep him, great. However, cost has to be considered. I still would prefer Grilli remain as the long reliever, and Schoney go down to AAA to figure it out. They are the ones who are there day in and day out watching ST, so if they feel this is best, I'll go with it.

Ideally, I'd like to have someone who can get major league hitters out pitching in the #5 spot. Whether he throws with his right arm, left arm, or left foot is inconsequential.

As a fellow Redbird, I've always been on ther Cotts bandwagon. That being said, I'll certainly be nervous if he's on the bump at Yankee Stadium sometime next weekend.
