Homestand Pitching Probables (Sept. 3-8)

Here are the current pitching probables for the homestand that begins today. Not all of these guys have been officially announced, so some are just educated guesses. Of course, everything is subject to change in the event of a rainout, injury, arrest - what have you.

Incidentally, it came to my attention that the Phillies' website has Joe Blanton scheduled to pitch in the night game of Monday's doubleheader. This would be on only three days' rest. If this information is right, then it would make no sense unless Charlie is planning not to use a spot starter at all in the series, and instead start Blanton, Hamels, and Halladay on short rest in three consecutive games. Could that possibly be what he's thinking? It seems to me that this would be extremely unwise regardless of the fact that there's an off-day coming up on Thursday. Yet it would also be consistent with Charlie's character.

For purposes of this chart, however, I am going to assume that Charlie will not be an idiot.
