"The one thing I’ve learned about Ned and Dayton both is they are as obsessed with winning as I am. All three of us have a real problem when we lose. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not just committed to winning, I’m obsessed with winning." -David Glass

“I’m going to do everything I can,” Chen said on Saturday. “If they need me to go out and throw 100 pitches, that’s what I’m going to do.”
The idea that Chen might be rusty for his first start since his injury wasn’t well received by manager Ned Yost.
“You make it sound like he hasn’t pitched in nine years,” Yost said before Saturday’s game against division-leading Detroit. “He’ll be fine. He’s ready to go.”

NOW, we give him a day off? right before he is going to catch 4 innings in 4 days? same with cain. is it so hard to stagger the days these guys have off?ryancrist86 wrote: I get giving Salvy the day off, but why give Butler and Cain the day off, when they're about to get a few off after today?

I'd start with Wade Davis for 2 innings, then Chen for 1, Ventura for 2, Chen for 1, Herrera for 1, etc. with Holland pitching for 1-2 innings somewhere in there vs Kinsler-Cabrera-Martinez-HunterBut no manager is going to be unconventional I suppose.
