While I am in favor of pulling him from the rotation now that he has hit his innings limit, I think it wrong to say that there was only one way to manage those innings.  I don't think I ever favored a stone cold shut down and a restart, but more use of Lannan / Gorz / Stammen as spot starters (6 starts in the year instead of 2 to this point), a 6 man rotation when they were playing with CMW, or a stretch of short starts could have given 2 -3 start late in the year.  I probably have some of that posted at the start of this thread or in an early season rotation thread.
