Tony Armas and the fight for relevancy

Tony takes the mound with his rotation spot on the line at 7:05 tonight against Ricky Nolasco. Nolsasco had a decent rookie year last year, but has been pretty damn bad this year. Not nearly as bad as Tony Armas, but bad nonetheless. I've already written what I think will happen with Armas tonight... it's right below this post. Given that I'm so positive he's going to get rocked, I suppose chances are quite good that he won't get rocked and he'll be in the rotation for some time to come. Nolasco is right handed, which means Ryan Doumit will play tonight. That's nice since he's killing the ball and all. If Adam LaRoche gets one hit tonight, he'll probably end the game over the Mendoza line. That would be nice.
