Cheering against Horacio Ramirez

Yesterday Horacio Ramirez was terrible.  And Trey Hillman knows it. 

I don't like the idea of cheering against a player on my favorite team, but I can't help hoping that HoRam continues his display of ineptitude so as to pitch himself out of the rotation.  I think that the Royals have a small shot at the division this year, and that shot decreases with every start Ramirez makes.  At the same time, I'm not sure the alternatives are all that great:

 

(I know, ST stats are useless, but)

Bannister has been BAD this ST

Hochevar looks like the same inconsistent pitcher he was last season. (I think he's #4 in the rotation right now.)

Sidney Ponson has shown very little over the past five years that makes me confident. 

Ducky can't make his cameo this early in the season.

Lenny Dinardo seems very hittable.

Heath Phillips only started 7 games last year in AAA and he's never broken through. 

Am I missing anyone?

 

Another factor in this is that Ramirez wasn't the only pitcher who was bad yesterday.  The two teams combined for 15 homeruns! So, while Ramirez won't get a full pass on yesterday (Hillman was sure to mention that he got hit HARD.), he might not get ousted for it.

 

So, two questions:

1.) What are your thoughts on cheering against someone on your favorite team (who isn't a total jerk)?

2.) Who gets that rotation spot? And is it worth cheering against Ramirez?

(I know, that's three questions.)
