Exactly what I was thinking. Naturally, the Milwaukee brass will be weighing the options. Parra has done very well in the minors, showed some good stuff last year and is tearing up spring training. I think they know he should be in their starting five. The major con is the slew of starters they do have and a few of them don't have minor league contracts. Plus they are leery of Manny sustaining an injury.

I think the Brewers have to go with their best 5. They were in the hunt for the division title last year and their fans expect them to be there again. If they were in a rebuilding mode or simply had lower expectations, I think Manny would start in AAA.

This thread must have more posts by users with no avatar than any I've ever seen.

I think either Parra or Villaveuva should start in that 5th spot in the rotation. I'd love to see both, but I think Capuano is going to get the nod. Bush is the odd man out here for me - he needs to be traded.
