What is going to happen sometime around July?

At this point going into the season, I think we can all agree that our fortunes have reversed from last year, and now it is our pitching staff that is the biggest question mark. Most of the focus on AN has been who is going to fill the five starting slots when the discussion of our pitching staff comes up. But I have another question: What is going to happen towards the middle half of the second part of the season?

 

Outman, Cahill, Anderson, Braden, Eveland....all the focus has been on how they will fare, and if they are ready to face major league hitting. But out of this group, only Eveland has over 150 IP last season. None of these guys have thrown 200 innings in their life. What is going to happen to our pitching staff, collectively, as the dog days of summer approach? Are we going to see a lot of 4 inning starts and a heavy dependence on our middle relievers? What happens when these guys run out of gas? Or will they?

 

2008 Trevor K-Hill 124 innings between A/AA

           Brett Anderson 105 innings A/AA

           Josh (You are) Outman 122 innings AA/AAA/MLB

           Diamond Dallas 70 innings MLB

           Dana (not here only Zul) Eveland168 innings
