Yahoo shows him as the starter on Monday against the Brewers. Should I start him?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

He's gonna start, so make sure you have a DL spot available by tomorrow. :-D
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

My bad. 5 innings or 75-80 pitches, according to MLB.com. I say cross your fingers...

MLB.com
Oswalt returns: Hunsicker and manager Jimy Williams will watch with bated breath during Roy Oswalt's first start in six weeks when he opens a four-game set in Milwaukee on Monday.

The right-hander will attempt his third comeback of the year after three stints on the disabled list with the same right groin strain.

Oswalt will likely have to undergo surgery during the offseason to repair a torn sheath near the groin but the Astros are hoping they can squeeze out four starts from Oswalt with 21 games remaining in the regular season.

How the right-hander will perform after the longest layoff of his professional career is anyone's guess.

"He hasn't pitched in quite a while," Williams said. "Even if he can pitch those four games, how sharp can he be with those breaking balls? Let's go see. That's why we play these games. If it was that easy to do, pitching or hitting, to figure out what's going to happen, we wouldn't even play these games."

Williams estimated Oswalt will throw five innings or 75-80 pitches, whichever comes first.

I'd still start him because he may get me a win by using only 5 innings :-)
