    1270 said his arm was tired after his last start, so I don’t think this was really planned, it’s just part and parcel of their cautious approach.

    This is definately a good time to do it before we get into the bruisers for this month, although the ESPN.com headling makes it seem alot more serious and not a planned thing.

    Maybe Rogers should sit down a game too. Something that might be verry possible in another week or so with Maroth expected to pitch in Toledo on Wed.

    My undertanding is that this wasn’t part of a long term master plan, but that these are the types of precautions Leyland was planning on. I think that ideally, Leyland would have waited until Maroth was back. The good news is that it is fatigue and not pain.

    I have a ticket to Sunday’s game. Very dissapointing to miss the C.C. vs JV matchup. Boo.
