Yeah and he is yanked after only 1 start. Taubenheim was pretty bad but still got something like 8 starts. McGowan on the other hand is pulled from the rotation after only 1, so bad he only gets 1, when others struggling get so many more. The team even prefers the embarassment of a 4-man rotation to having McGowan make a 2nd start, that is how worthless they realize he is. Just like I said it shows Janssen, Taubenheim, Marcum, and League have all blown past him and he has NO future with the team. Glad he is gauranteed to be gone by April of next year on waivers if he is not traded, but I hope they trade him to get some value for him. The sad part is they already wasted their best opportunities to trade him for the most they could have gotten. It is crazy JP might have given up Bush and Jackson for nothing when McGowan is waived off next April.

Blue Jays.com said Francisco Rosario is gonna start against the Chicago Whitesox tommorow



Rosario to start Saturday: Gibbons insists that when rookie Dustin McGowan entered Wednesday's game against the Yankees in relief, it wasn't a sign that the rookie right-hander was heading back to the bullpen. On Friday, that's exactly what the Blue Jays announced was happening.

Fellow rookie righty Francisco Rosario, who spent time in Toronto's bullpen earlier this year, is going to start instead of McGowan on Saturday versus the White Sox. On Friday, the 25-year-old Rosario was recalled from Triple-A, where he was 0-2 with a 3.51 ERA in nine games, including eight starts.

"We needed another pitcher," Gibbons said matter-of-factly. "We think Rosario bounces back better with his arm with some time off in between."

Gibbons said McGowan still has potential to become a starter, but Toronto's manager feels the young pitcher best suits the club as a reliever for now. Last year, McGowan posted a 0.82 ERA out of the bullpen.

"I want him to come in there for an inning or two and turn it loose -- just let it rip," Gibbons said. "We saw what he did at the end of last year. He's just a power arm coming out of there, and he's durable."

To make room on the active roster for Rosario, catcher Jason Phillips was designated for assignment.

Wow, that's a bit odd that they would pull the plug on McGowan after he dominated the A's for the first 4 innings last weekend and looked great until he got beat up a bit in the 4th. Obviously JP isn't very confident in him at all, and they want to see what Rosario can do in the starter's role. I think he may be the 11th pitcher that's started a game for us this season... :-o

I dont know why they dont just trade McGowan already and get it done with rather then wait to lose him on waivers next April for nothing. They do get good offers for him, he has no future with the team, JP does not like him at all, and they still stall the whole thing out. It is crazy. The same thing will happen to him as happened for Quiroz last year, they thought their was an outside chance he would be backup catcher in 2006 so they dragged it out and then he was sent to the minors and lost on waivers for nothing. This would be even worse since they are getting better offers for McGowan then they were getting for Quiroz, and they still do nothing with them, it is nuts.
