Open Thread: Cubs vs. Phillies, Wednesday 9/20, 6:05 CT

Les Walrond. You have GOT to be joking.

Yes, we all know he threw well in his last relief appearance. However, there is absolutely NO justification for this man to EVER start another major league game, EVER. Did I say "EVER"?

There is some good news, possibly. After Rich Hill starts Friday and Carlos Zambrano Saturday in Cincinnati, Sunday's starter is listed as "TBD". Maybe THAT is when Jae-Kuk Ryu will get another chance to start.
