    It's like the boys said. If he keeps us in games and gives us a chance to win until Smoltz comes back, than good enough Penny. Thanks buddy. LoL like man.. he ain't going to win 20 games. He's penciled in at the 4 or 5 spot anyways.

    Buchholz isn't up and Penny still is incase exactly what happened to Clay happened or happens again this year. Clay exceeded too fast with his no hitter. The kid is young, you need to protect him in the minors but only for a certain amount of time. Every young kid is different. And confidence is the biggest thing I think a young kid will need. He won't get it if he wins a game or two in the bigs, then gets rocked for his next 2.

    Give Clay time and don't expect 15-20 wins out of a number 4 or 5 starter. Even though I don't like Penny.

    yup, given the amount of starts per year, they would have to all be titanic 150+ ERA pitchers to do it. Four 16's would be roughly equivalent today.

    I remember that team.

    If I reacall correctly all of them sported sub 3.00 ERA's and they had 75 - 80 complete games combined.

    Only four starters in that rotation though and I don't imagine that Earl Weaver had a clicker out counting pitches each time they threw.
