I know Bush struggled at the start of the year, but I had faith that he would turn it around and he has had 2 strong starts in a row. I don't really see why Yost would make this move now...
Does anyone else have any more info or thoughts on this topic?
That seems to be the big question this week, and honestly, I am guessing along with everybody else. Chris Capuano is on track to return July 2 from his groin strain, meaning Gallardo, Bush or Vargas likely will be bounced from the rotation.
Bush threw back-to-back outstanding starts, but Yost said on Monday night Bush would be available out of the bullpen starting Tuesday, and there is some frustration about the fact Vargas can never get past the sixth inning -- two factors that could mean Gallardo is staying in the rotation.
Yost said Gallardo would start Friday against the Cubs, but has also said a move to the bullpen after that is possible. Stay tuned.

To me, the real question is "why sign Suppan in the first place?" With Gallardo likely to be ready sometime in '07, why go out and spend a boatload on a mediocre starting pitcher coming off a very successful post-season? The Brew Crew should have saved that cash and used it to add a veteran bat at the deadline. Now they have a log jam in the rotation. They are being forced to play a guy even when they have other, better options in house, just because you can't justify paying Suppan millions to be a long reliever. Milwaukee has done a terrific job making their team competitive and setting themselves up for long-term success. The Suppan signing seems like a braincramp to me.
