Well, Smoltz is a Brave for life, and can be counted on to be in our starting rotation for the next three years as long as he stays healthy. This on the heels of the Brian McCann signing has me wondering who's next - possibly Jeff Francoeur.

Though, tonight in the Rocky Mountains it's time for Chuck James to get back on track. With the disasters that are Mark Redman and Kyle Davies, and the continued injury problems of Lance Cormier, it is even more critical that James solidify a spot in the rotation with quality starts.
