Speaking of John Hickey, he was on KJR this morning (yeah, I’m doing the stay-at-home Dad thing right now, so I listen to too much KJR). On the subject of Campillo, he said the M’s see him competing for the 4th/5th starter job. “But who’s out of the rotation, then?” you must be asking yourself. Apparently the M’s have discussed the possibility of moving — gasp — Ryan Franklin back to the bullpen.
Regardless of Campillo, that they’re even considering yanking Franklin from the rotation seems like a good start to me.
