Chicago White Sox vs. Pittsburgh, 15 June 2007

Jon Garland vs. Paul Maholm.

The big news today is that John Van Benschoten will take B.P. Chacon's place in the rotation. I can't get too excited about a guy with a 1.5/1 K/BB ratio in Class AAA joining the rotation, but I probably like his chances of succeeding better than I liked Chacon's. Van Benschoten will start tomorrow and there will be a roster move then - the Pirates can pretty much just have their current relievers play a game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey and send down the loser, and there'd be no real chance it'd hurt the team. Anyway, congratulations to Van Benschoten for making it back.
