Does Laffey go down to Buffalo after his start Thursday in order to keep on his normal rotation schedule? Perhaps M.Miller comes up then?
Also: It looks like the rotation sets up so that Sabathia and Carmona start the two games at home against Detroit next week. Is it worth starting Laffey(or someone) on the 19th in Tampa Bay in order to bring CC back for the three game trip to Detroit the next week?
On a side note: Under the 10 day rule, could we send Laffey to Buffalo after his start on the 9th and then recall him before the game on the 19th or would we have to call someone else up?
