Hole Punched in Pitching Rotation

If Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times has got it right, Alex Cobb has been scratched from today's game in Toledo. He's reportedly on his way to St. Pete for a Tuesday start against the Rangers. The plan, I think, was for Edgar Gonzalez to start the first game today and Cobb to start the second. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

In the near term, I'm guessing Jeremy Hall, who was transferred to Hudson Valley on paper, may be back. But the Rays are gonna have to put someone on DL/option to Durham (Gomes?) to make room for Cobb.
Reason enough to try to catch the opening comments tonight.

UPDATE: As I write (5:45) the Bulls are in Toledo watching the rain come down. At best they might get in one game tonight. In the meantime, I guessed wrong regarding who might be starting in place of Alex Cobb. I'd forgotten about new guy Jay Buente, who has a lot of AAA starting pitcher experience. If they were to play a second game, Solondz is reporting that Buente would start. Does not look good, at the moment, for even one game, much less two.
