Name That Rotation (with poll)

Now that Yovanni has finally arrived, I think most people 'round these parts think the Rotation of the Future(TM) is ready.  

So let's cut-and-paste a pitching staff, shall we?

Here are the pieces you have to make fit.  Let's assume that everyone is healthy, so we'll call this the pitching staff that opens the second half:

  • Sheets
  • Capuano
  • Bush
  • Suppan
  • Vargas
  • CoCo
  • Dessens
  • Shouse
  • Spurling
  • Turnbow
  • Villanueva
  • Wise
  • Capellan
  • Gallardo
I like our staff in this order: Sheets, Suppan, Capuano, Villanueva, Gallardo.  Bush and Vargas are moved to the pen.  CoCo closes, of course, with Wise/Turnbow/Capellan setting him up.  Choose between Spurling and Shouse, with the loser and Dessens getting the boot.  What do you think?


We all want Gallardo to start ASAP. What about Villanueva? Does he get a shot?
