Rotation Hijinks

I note that Dusty has changed around the rotation so that Prior is not going to follow Wood tomorrow; instead Estes will pitch Wednesday against the Brewers. He can do this because Estes threw only 52 pitches on Saturday, and this way, looking ahead -- Prior throws against the Cardinals and Braves before the break, and then -- oh, gee, here's a surprise -- would be right on target to throw in the All-Star Game, and then the Cubs could get back to Wood and Prior afterwards, since they have the Thursday after the ASG off.

Just thinking out loud.
