...is debating on whether or not he'll make his next start because of a sore neck.
I think he should skip it, but not because of the neck.
I think he needs some extra rest. He's thrown 202 innings, his highest total since 1997. I want him pitching at a high level in the postseason and in 2006 and beyond if he pitches that long. I fear that giving him too much of a workload is going to either injure him or for him to not be the same quality of a pitcher.
It's obvious he hasn't been the same his last few times out. I think it's because of the neck and because of fatigue.
