I believe this is the same path Gallardo took last year. Rookie called up to a contending team to replace an injured starter. Pitched well then went to the pen for a week or 2, another injury prone starter got hurt, then Gallardo replaced him for the rest of the season. Lets see, Randy Johnson, injury prone, hasn't made it through a season in a while. If Scherzer goes out and lights it up like he can, I'd say they will have to drag him off the mound. If the fans get behind him it will even be tougher for them to keep him in the pen, unless he is closing. Off to the best start in franchise history, you have a guy who is recovering from cancer and a guy who back is as fragile as Rich Harden. I'd say Mad Max will be this year's Gallardo.
