White Sox Keeping 6 Man Rotation?

"If it ain't broke, don't fix. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen apparently feels that way about his six-man rotation and may keep the unconventional alignment as long as the All-Star break, reports Doug Padilla of

The White Sox, who completed a three-game sweep in Boston Wednesday, have been using six starters in succession since Jake Peavy returned from the disabled list May 11 (ESPN)."

I (along with most people) thought this would fizzle out by now, but Guillen is a crazy man and seems to like it. There are some benefits of it. It keeps Buehrle from being overused, while being able to slow down the innings on Peavy's duck taped arm. Still, I am shocked they are not knocking Danks out of the rotation, as he is yet to win this year. It will be very interesting to see how long they stick with it, because there are not many teams that put 6 good starting pitchers out there every week.

I still say it's gone within the next week or two.
