Roster for August

I'm bored at work thinking about the Cards' rotation for the rest of the month, and see a nice opportunity for going to a 4 man rotation w/o Looper or Piniero after 8/13 @FLA. If it were up to me, I might give Garcia one more start in place of one of them on either 8/11 or 8/13, but I don't envision TLR doing that.

8/8-10 @ CHC - Looper/Colonel (big start v Big Z)/Carp

811/-14 @ FLA - Piniero/Lohse/Looper/Colonel

8/15-17 @ CIN - Carp/Return of Waino (too late/soon?)/Lohse

8/19-20 PIT - Colonel/Carp

8/22-24 ATL - Waino/Lohse/Colonel

8/26/27 MIL - Big Guns Carp & Waino

8/28-31 @ HOU - Lohse/Colonel/Carp

During this time we move Loop into a 7th/8th inning role with Piniero as more of a long reliever.  Who goes off the 25 man when Waino comes back?  Well, I'd love for it to be Lopez, but seeing as he just got here and it would leave us with 3 bench players, so I knid of doubt that.  That leaves a problem of who gets bulleted down to AAA from the bullpen.  The worst performers have been Izzy/Villone but I can't see either of them shipping out.  Even though I feel maybe Joel would be the best to go, it seems that Brad is more likely to lose his spot.  What are your thoughts?

Starting 12(yadi,pujols,kennedy,iz2,glaus,lud,rick,skip,carp,waino,colonel,lohse)

Bench 4 (lopez,miles,larue,mather)

Bullpen 9 (perez,mcclellan,springer,garcia,looper,villone.franklin,izzy,piniero)

I'd like to think that adding Looper and Piniero to the BP would help a lot, but I just don't see it. 

I know the price was too steep, but holy hell would a Fuentes/Sherril whoever have whipped this pen into shape.  Is Burger King still available?  Maybe lure Kliner out of retirement?  Maybe one of these days we'll see McClellan take over in RF, Skip move to center and have Ricky come in to face a lefty.
