    Trust me I'm not one of "those guys". I really want Bird to succeed, and I don't think he's injury prone. He can really be a difference maker on this team. I'm just saying that's absolute terrible luck, that the guard didn't protect his entire elbow. Almost like Teixeira fouling the ball off his leg missing the shin guard. Reports seem to indicate all is well, so, hopefully he'll be on the roster come opening day. Go Yankees!!!

    Right, that's self evident and I said as much in the first sentence of my post.

    However, unless the strategy is to reduce each starter's workload by an inning over a 162 game season, they're going to get the same number of times through the order before being replaced. You're just changing the timing and possibly the situation.
