Igawa out of the rotation

Postby Big Pimpin » Fri Apr 27, 2007 10:52 am

Did anyone else see this? Or is it just that no one cares?

Interesting. Let's say Karstens is the better pitcher: we'd still take our chances with the pitcher the Red Sox have never seen before over the one they just lit up a week earlier. Igawa might go right back into the rotation next week, or he might find himself in Triple-A when Mike Mussina comes off the DL. It'd be a risk to drop him in AL-only leagues, but it seems doubtful that he'll be worth using again anytime soon.

Maybe Karstens is less likely to allow back-to-back-to-back-to-back homers so that's probably why he's starting Saturday.

Yeah, I saw that Igawa thing - it's gotta be temporary. Well when you have a better record than only...what 3 teams...decisions will be questioned.

Could be a sign Hughes will stay in major longer than expected?

Igawa is back.
He held the Bosox to 2 hits in 6 shutout innings.
Walked 4 and struck out 6.

Igawa seemed more comfortable pitching yesterday. He pulled off some nice work. Maybe Igawa will see more time in the rotation now that Karstens is on the DL.
