That AB was pathetic, horrendous. I don't understand why Larussa and now Matheny loves the guy. Carpenter has proved he is just as good as Descalso and he can hit. He drags the team down. WTF you swing at that shit after walking two batters..... thats criminal

Now that Garcia has gone down with his annual injury to the labia in his shoulder, what do you do?

Option 1: Promote an undeserving Joe Kelly to the rotation (looks like this is the route they are going)
Option 2: Bring up Wacha
Option 3: Hope Boggs comes back from his section 8, send Rosenthal down to stretch him out, and bring him back sometime around July as a starter.

Westbrook needs to get healthy quickly, otherwise too many of our innings will be eaten by arms that aren't ready for a 200 inning workload.
Has to be Wacha. Gast isn't ready to pitch 7 innings at the ML level. Kelly was good as a starter for a while. Does anyone really trust him? Martinez isn't ready for starter duty.

But, at least we have options. Most clubs that lose 3 out of their 5 starters would be in big trouble.
