Is Hammel our 5th starter?

...or do we stick with EJax...or do we call up Niemann? I guess it all comes down to getting something for EJax since he won't clear waivers?

Well if the A's claimed Rudy Lugo %6 than i am thinking there would be multiple people lining up for E. I think u keep sending him out there like they did with Bonderman and Maroth, he has too much talent to give up on. I don't think we call Niemann up yet

Niemann is not quite ready just yet. I would like to see him have 2 or 3 more starts working on his changeup, and then maybe call him up. As far as Hammel, he will get lit up like a Christmas tree in the starting rotation. His fastball is pretty straight, and if he is not throwing it down in the zone, well can you say welcome Mr. 8.5 ERA. The worse thing is that he is a much better option then Jackson at this time. His confidence is completely blown now, but I think he is still too valuable to just out right cut.

Tonight maybe E's last chance to show that he needs to stay in the rotation. I hope he quits thinking and just freaking throws the ball

I don't know if his lack of confidence right now will let him just throw the ball. :-°
