Arms Race 3

Ben Sheet has been lights out so far this spring. It's good to see Ben pitching this well. Hopefully it carries over until the regular season. Deciding whether to resign him after a 20-win season would be a nice problem to have.

Claudio Vargas continues to pitch well. I believe at this point a trade would be the most likely thing to keep him out of the rotation. I had him at 85% last week, I'll keep him there.

Manny Parra is also making a case for himself but at this point I still see him as a long shot. Still, I'll bump him up from 5% to 20%. Yovanni Gallardo drops from 10% to 5%. His recovery from knee surgery is progressing nicely, but I really don't think the Brewers are going to push him. He's probably right now where everyone else was at the start of camp.

On the other side of the coin, David Bush and Chris Capuano are struggling. Bush has given up 10 hits and 4 walks in 5 IP; Cappy 10 hits and 1 walk in 4 IP. I think collectively they have let one of the spots slip away, with Carlos Villanueva being the beneficiary.

Once again, there isn't much to say about Jeff Suppan except that he'll be there.

1. Sheets (100%)
2. Suppan (100%)
3. Vargas (85%)
4. Bush (70%)
5. Villanueva (65%)
6. Capuano (55%)
7. Parra (20%)
8. Gallardo (5%)
