Reason for Concern?

Outside of Roy Halladay, the Phillies rotation has been less than stellar. If not for the Red Zone Offense that Manager Charlie Manuel has been playing and the outstanding work the bullpen has been far more than expected. Between Cole Hamels, JA Happ, Kyle Kendrick, and Jamie Moyer, the four starters have averaged 4.2 IP per start. Granted Happ still has an ERA of zilch, he is averaging only 5 innings per start. Kyle Kendrick, who is filling in for injured starter Joe Blanton, has been absolutely ROCKED in two starts. I know it is only the second week of the season, but if this trend continues much longer, not only will the Philliies starting rotation become more and more nerve racking, but the bullpen will become highly taxed and may not be able to last the rest of the season intact and healthy.
