Estrada has just been giving the "vote of confidence" by Roenicke and will remain in the rotation....ugh.

The vote of confidence is also a kiss of death sometimes. If he gets blown up again, we may see him hit the "Disgraceful List."

It's been three years with Estrada now where the skills are there but he can't put it together. If they were serious about contending they really would remove him or try to trade him

So..it'll be fiers before jimmy boy right? They'll give fiers the first shot *if* they decide to move Estrada....which clearly should be the move they make?

Edit: I've been holding into Nelson and want him in the rotation, much like others in this thread. I just know that fiers had been pitching well and am curious who people think will get the shot should Estrada be sent down.

I don't even own Nelson and I believe he needs to be in the rotation over Estrada, especially after his spot start earlier in the year. Estrada's talents are more suited for long relief. He is not a very good pitcher. You can't throw a fastball 89 mph with no movement in the majors for long, I don't care how good your changeup is.

They have been resisting moving him to bullpen since they may need him to start if the situation arises. He is likely first in line if somebody like Estrada gets removed as a starter.

Nelson will start this season. Before the all-star break though is tricky too tell.

Does this not look like a no-brainer? It has everything you need for a call-up.


  • Team in playoff contention

  • SP struggling for an extended period of time.

  • SP in minors spectacular for entire season.

  • SP in minors has nothing left to prove in MiLB.

  • Super 2 has passed.

Had his worst start of the season arguably last night:

5.2 IP, 5 runs (2 earned), 8 hits, 3 BB, 5 Ks.

Seems like his defense really let him down in the 2nd inning, where they made a pair of errors leading to 3 unearned runs. He may not have had his best stuff yesterday (8 hits and 3 BB are his highest totals in a single start all season) but he would have limited the damage were it not for the errors.

Seems like it was a bit of an off day, but still better than Estrada giving up bombs to 8 different batters a game

Kind of a tough time to have a bad start with Estrada reeling and about to make his next start in Colorado.... Still think we see Nelson over the next three weeks.

Best part about Nelson is that he pitched 153 innings last year and is only at 88 IP now. As 25 year old, that means he probably has just short of 100 IP the rest of the way.

Unleash JIMMY!!! Estrada's ERA is now at 5.34 on the season and he still leads the MLB in HR's allowed. Meanwhile, Jimmy Nelson only has a 1.62ERA, 0.96WHIP, 91K in 83IP (9.8 K/9), and ONLY 1HR allowed all season with a miniscule 3.5 SO/BB ratio.
