Micah Owings has put up some excellent numbers in his four Spring Training starts. He certainly hasn't nailed down the fifth spot in the rotation as Homer Bailey has pitched almost as well (lower ERA but far fewer strikeouts). Most folks see Nick Masset as having fallen out of serious contention (though to my knowledge Dusty has said boo about it). But most folks who are aware that Masset is out of options also seem to think that he might still earn a spot in the pen. But what would his role be? Long man? Sixth man? Does that mean that the loser of the Bailey/Owings battle heads to Louisville?
So, what say you, Red Reporters?
Is it time to get serious with our informed yet ultimately meaningless predictions about the Opening Day pitching staff?
