After Brad Mills' outing today, the three horse race for the final two rotation spots is neck and neck. Neither Scott Richmond, Ricky Romero, or Brad Mills have pulled ahead as favourites. Maybe the Blue Jays should just take all 3?
Mills was alright today; 4 earned runs in 6 innings of work. He gave up 10 hits, including a RBI single to Derek Lowe. Yeah, Derek Lowe had 2 RBI's today? I have no idea how the hell that happened either.
Richmond, Mills and Romero will probably get one final shot to state their case. Think of it like the pitching version of American Idol's bottom 3. But instead of V-Neck wearing british douchebag judging them, it will be J.P. Ricciardi and Cito Gaston deciding their fate.
Roy Halladay is set to start tomorrow's game against Jose Bautista's old team, the Pittsburgh Pirates. Still no word yet on when Scott Richmond will get another chance to start a game. My guess is that he pitches on Saturday vs. the Tigers. Richmond has been idle since Sunday, but all he needs is one quality start to solidify his position on the Blue Jays. But in the meantime, Ricky Romero and Brad Mills are keeping pace as we all wait to see who will finally win those coveted #4 and #5 posititions on the team.
