A problem I see with evaluating 40-man talent in August/September as part of a 6-man rotation, is that you learn what they can do in the context of 6 or 7 days between starts, which is not the context you care about.

Maybe not ideal but I say its a lot better context than say, spring training.

Well, there's that.

IMO not many roster decisions should be made on spring numbers or "hunches" either.

Shared pain is lessened, shared joy increased, shared memory corrupted, reboot.

I don't see the need for a sixth man in the rotation. Take Pino out of the August rotation and put Darnell in the September pen.
