What about making Colome or even Traber a starter? I doubt they'd put Speigner back out there ... whatever little confidence he had has got to be shot by now
That won't happen. Acta already said Traber won't start. Speigner pitched a 4-inning shutout, if his fielders had only bothered to catch 2 fly balls that were 2 feet away from them. Zimmerman's inability to make throws prolonged the first inning rally. Love the Web Gem highlights, but he needs to drill, drill drill on his throws, because a LOT of them STINK.
Speigner only gave up a single in the 4th, but no more runs. The 2nd and 3rd innings were 1-2-3. He was at 80 pitches, but only thanks to the incompetence
of his 1st inning fielders. Acta knows he could have gotten 5 or 6 innings, so this was an improved performance. I have hope for him now, until our starters return, although they said San Diego was now the worst hitting team in MLB before tonight.
