Do you feel that no matter how successfull Wakefield is today, if Miller looks good tomorrow, Wakefield is back in the bullpen?

    With the way Wakefield is pitching right now, how can you consider removing him from the rotation.

    Like in '08, the Sox wanted to rest Wake, but he went on a tear and we needed the wins.

    2008- 9 game streak:

    May 28  8 IP 5H  1 ER
    June 2   7 IP 5H  2 ER
    June 7   7 IP 5 H 2 ER
    June 14 7 IP 4 H 2 ER
    June 20 7 IP 7 H 3 ER
    June 26 7 IP 2 H 0 ER
    July 1st 7 IP 5 H 1 ER
    July 6th 6.1  4 H 3 ER
    July 12  7 IP 2 H 1 ER

    He then had 2 games with 12.1 IP and 10 ER followed by 4 more gems:

    Aug 1  6.1 IP  4 H  0 ER
    Aug 6  6.0 IP  4 H  1 ER
    Aug 26  5 IP  8 H  3 ER
    Aug 31  6 IP  6 H  3 ER

    I think if Miller is impressive, you will see a part-time 6 man rotation.  Basically, Timmy will still be starting but with some extra rest ... and other starters will be getting extra days here and there too.  That's just a guess, but I think it's feasible that the FO/Tito will want to save some wear and tear on the starters while NOT making choices on Wake and Miller.
