Here’s your 6 man rotation

With today’s official announcement that John Smoltz will make his Red Sox debut next Thursday, For right now, anyway, the Red Sox are going with a 6 man starting pitching rotation, the first 6 man rotation since, since, well…quite frankly, I just don’t know. But here is what their rotation looks like for the next 2 weeks.

Tues vs Fla -Tim Wakefield wins 8-2 to go to 9-3

Wed vs Fla-Brad Penny wins 6-1 to go to 6 and 2

Thur vs Fla- Lester loses 2-1 to go to 5 and 6 on the year

Fri vs Atl -Daisuke (1-4)

Sat vs Atl -Beckett (7-3)

Sun vs Atl- Wakefield (9-3)

Tues @ Wash -Brad Penny(6-2)

Wed @ Wash- Lester(5-6)

Thur @ Wash- John Smoltz (0-0)

Fri @ Atl -Beckett (7-3)

Sat @ Atl -Daisuke (7 days rest)

Sun @ Atl -Wakefield (6 Days rest)

Daisuke is the 1st Red Sox pitcher scheduled to get the longest rest (and the shortest straw), and for good reason- he has been the least effective red Sox starting pitcher. Now this schedule is subject to change since injuries can rear their ugly head at anytime.

I will update you if the above schedule changes.
