Manager Dick Sisler is making some curious decisions about his starting rotation. After Joey Jay was shelled in a relief and starting performance in yesterday’s double-header, Sisler announced plans for a four-man rotation: Jim Maloney, Sammy Ellis, Gerry Arrigo, and Jay. “I’ll use either John Tsitouris or Joe Nuxhall as a swing man when we
