Kirk Saarloos starts tonight, in search of a spot in the 2008 rotation, according to mlb.com. Ummm…okay. I thought Saarloos might be able to compete for the fifth spot in this year’s rotation, but he has done nothing all year. In fact, in his last start, as you might recall, Saarloos faced seven batters and didn’t get any of them out.
Let’s hope tonight’s results are different. Saarloos has been bad this year, but he isn’t really this bad. Maybe the turnaround will start tonight. It might be his last chance; there is speculation that Homer Bailey might make a start this week.
Jeff Suppan starts for the Brew Crew. Discuss it here.
