Will Kyle Davies hold down the 5th starter spot in Atl or will he get bumped by Lance Cormier?

He will more than likely be bumped by Cormier when he gets off the DL. That said, Davies might stick if Redman keeps sucking :-P

My prediction for Davies: pitches well but, you know, not too well in his next start, gets demoted to AAA anyways when Cormier returns. Works on his command/walks a bit more in Richmond, dominates the league for a couple months, returns to the Majors replacing either someone injured or an ineffective Cormier or Redman (who, believe me, will get a fairly long leash) and sticks around until his career is ended by injury or age.

This guy was once regarded as a top-level pitching prospect, certainly higher on most charts than Chucky James. He's got good stuff and, as we've seen in spurts, can strike people out. He gets himself into trouble with the free passes and would get frustrated/lose his composure in the past. He believes the latter issues are past him now, and seeing his performance after walking Reyes on 4 straight to start the game last weekend, I'm inclined to believe him.

Anyhow, if both he and Cormier have really improved significantly from last year, the Atlanta rotation could actually be a strength for the team. And wouldn't that be scary for the rest of the NL. :-)

If he pitches good again he can expect to stay in the rotation and most likely bump Redman down
