1. Braden will start Opening Night. he is being placed on a schedule which puts him there-- Eveland is way off that schedule;
2. Duke might be ready by end of first week, meaning there could be only 1 spot available;
3. That spot will go to Cahill or Anderson. Edgar is Gone; no discussion of Outman.
4. Which means if Duke is not ready-- suffers a setback, for example-- we'll probably see both of the kids in the rotation.
I wish there were more depth-- in terms of more guys doing better than they are-- but this is the outcome I expected several weeks ago. So let's leave all the service time and overwork debate to the side for a while, and hope the kids are all right.
