It looks like they shifted the rotation around so Lester could start that day. They need to stop jerking Lester around and call him up already.
They're not jerking Lester around. The guy is coming off fighting cancer, and that happened less than a year ago. Its absolutely amazing that he is where he is in such a short time. I think it is a good idea to play it safe, and make sure he is ready before they send him up.
Circumstances do seem to be pointing toward him being called up this time around, but I wouldn't expect a lot out of him. I was kind of expecting them to call Gabbard up as well. Does anyone know when he is scheduled to start next?
