With Kazmir Sidelined here is the rotation:
Here is the thing for me, I am fine with Jackson in the rotation, but Hammel should not be. Howell should be long relief as he has dominated that during ST and faltered when they let him start, but why not Niemann. Hammel has been garbage all ST with an era of 7.13, while Niemann had a 1.50 ERA and looked impressive. Niemann kept the ball down like they asked and worked hard and we send him down for Hammel who is terrible. These are the decisions that drive me crazy.
