I wrote earlier this week that the Phillies should have used their rain-out to skip Cloyd's spot in the rotation, which would give Cliff Lee an additional start before the end of the season and Cloyd one fewer start. However, since they have an off-day on Monday, they will have another chance to juggle their rotation so that this is a possibility. If they fail to sweep the Braves, however, this will likely be a non-issue by Tuesday.
