Bochy bumped him up in the rotation due to the all-star break layoff, sohe hits the mound tonight. Word on the street is that if he gets shelled tonight that he may get his next start skipped. What I don't understand is what purpose would this serve? To teach him a lesson? More time to work on his mechanics? I know in football you got all week to take reps and the coaches have an idea of how they are performing and will make game time decisions accordingly. What do they do for pitchers? They've had an entire half season to see Timmy pitch. Don't they know what they got? How will skipping him help? Anyways, I hope Timmy comes out strong so we never have to address this.
