What is your guess?

Fri - Blaine Knight

Sat - Keaton McKinney

Sun - Isaiah Campbell

Who else should compete for a spot?

Is McKinney even cleared to start the season? I figure Murphy starts on Sunday for a while

Here is my rotation once SEC play starts:

Friday:  Campbell
Saturday:  Knight
Sunday:  Murphy but it wouldn't surprise me if it is Lee.  Lee may be more valuable out of the pen though and that is why I will stick with Murphy

I'd love to see McKinney have a big year, both for the team and for him.

Friday-Knight
Saturday-Campbell
Sunday-Murphy

However, I could also see it playing out where Campbell pitches Friday nights. Knight looked very comfortable last year when they switched him to Saturday. Murphy earned a spot on the weekend rotation with his postseason performances last year.

I'd be just fine with Mr. Lockdown on Saturday ... Murphy has earned the right to start Sundays, and I think he'd do well there.

Regardless, this is the most arm talent we have had on campus since Stanek was here. I haven't been this excited about a sports season since... maybe ever.

When you have a 1a and 1b type situation, I prefer to put 1a on Saturday. This puts a lot more pressure on the other teams Friday guy, because he knows if he loses then the series may be over already. So, I go:

Friday- Campbell
Saturday- Knight
Sunday- Murphy

I put Murphy in for a few reasons.

1. He earned a spot in the rotation at the end of last year.
2. I like to have a lefty starter in the rotation.
3. I picked him over Lee, because I think Lee can be an AA type Closer.

With mid week games against Tech, an improved Texas, Missouri St, Memphis, etc.   the fourth starter is really important too - and even the fifth. 

I wouldn't be surprised if they tried Lee as the fourth starter so he could focus on hitting during the weekends.  The way DVH talked, it seemed like he was looking at Lee as a starter more than in the bullpen at this point

I agree with this. I think Reindl will be our closer this year. Lee swung the bat well this fall so I would like to see DVH use him as a hitter on weekends. Question is who gets to be the 5th starter? Could it be one of the freshmen (Bonnin/Rutledge)? I guess Loeske could be, but he didn't show me much last year.

Dave's MO has been to identify a Freshman or Sophomore with weekend starter potential and start him mid-week to help him cut his teeth...I expect to see at least one Freshman start mid-week, and maybe two if the potential is there.
