Gio 4; slide one of the newer guys in at 3.    We may get a good game out of one of them.

With 27 votes cast, "Taylor Cole" is the leading candidate behind "We're screwed".

This season has taken an odd turn,

"We're screwed" seems to be it.

That's not quite the same thing; but given the options, my vote has now been cast...

Just have Tanner throw 3 innings every game, Max throw 3 innings, put them in whatever order you like 'em. We got 13 guys to work the 8th and Melancon to close it out.
Sweep the competition and earn yourselves a bonus day off or two.

We were screwed regardless of SS (see Dodgers, Cubs, etc).  Just enjoy the rest of the season and some young guys getting their chances. Really hope Steve's career isn't over, though $175 million to spend in San Diego woouldn't be the end of things.

Having the bullpen make a start might might not be the worst idea.

If the other three starters were Scherz-Stras-Roark then I'd be okay with idea of maybe having a game where you tell Gio to give everything he has for three innings before telling Belisle, Treinen, and Glover their jobs to get you through the next four innings. But that's no longer reality.

Just bite your lip, grab ahold of something and show that turd who's boss. We're going to get through this.

As long as two of them are Scherzer and a HEALTHY Strasburg - we don't have that.
