Philly is crazy for not going after Keuchel given their #3 starter is Pivetta.

He looks more and more like Doug Fister. Good idea to not buy in.

That's good.  I thought he over-used our pitchers early last year, and it led to issues mid season.

Wonder if Ross/Hellickson will take a bullpen assignment.

There was an interview with Ross on the Saturday MASN game where he said he was definitely willing and sounded like he thought that was where he was going to start the year.

I hope that's not a problem for his elbow. He's a pretty good pitcher. I gotta believe that if he's not in the Nats starting plans, they could move him for relief.

Would be interesting if every once in a while, we could go with a 6 man rotation

Is that hard to plan with one of your starters in the pen? Serious question. I don't know if that's how it's done.

In the old days, with a 4-man rotation, it was common for a guy to pitch a couple innings relief between starts  (on what otherwise, as in this day and age, would be his bullpen day).   If they could do that with 4-man, surely they could do it with 5-or 6-man.
