Atlanta's rotation- Davies or J. Sosa and Thompson's return

Postby fisher person » Mon Aug 01, 2005 8:38 pm

Anyone know who is going to get kicked out of the roation when Thompson comes back soon?

I hope its sosa, I'm looking at getting Davies off wire. Any chance Sosa could go to the pen, so Davies keeps his spot???

From what I heard, Sosa will be back in the bullpen, where they can use him every other or every third game. Sosa, Farnsworth, Reitsma is a pretty good 'pen, if you ask me.

I would also presume that upon Thomson's return, Sosa goes to the pen and, upon Hampton's return, Davies will go back to the minors. Since Davies is the starter by nature, and Sosa more of a MR-6th starter, I just can't see the Braves sending Davies down after Thomson's return unless they don't want to mess with the way their BP is set up right now (since someone has to get sent down when Thomson returns).

I'm not sure who will come back first, Hampton or Thomson, but I'm sure that Davies will be sent down first and then Sosa moved to the bullpen if/when they get all 5 back in the rotation. Sosa has been much better at starting, and in my opinion saved the Braves pitching staff in their darkest hour. He will be rewarded with as many starts as Bobby can give him.

There is also a precedent: when Hampton came back for all of one start, it was Davies who was sent down.

By September the staff should look like this:


Reitsma (CL)
Farnsworth (8th)
Boyer (7th)
Sosa (7th)
Brower (6th)
Foster (lefty)
Kolb (last resort)
