Done with pitching?

If Kawakami and Lowe don't go Furcal on us (I can't imagine that happening twice in a career, much less one offseason), then we have what looks to be a good starting rotation.

Let me pose this question.  Has a six man rotation been attempted recently? 

My thought is that we have a very good back end to the bullpen with Moylan, Soriano, and Gonzalez.  The middle relief, with Boyer, Acosta, Logan, maybe Ohman, etc. has potential.  Is it possible that we could go with 6 starting pitchers on roster and 6 guys in the pen. 

Lowe we know is a workhorse.  But Kawakami pitched in a 6 man rotation in Japan, Jurrjens and Campillo are still relative unknowns in terms of their long range stamina, Glavine may or may not be able to go with regularity, etc. 

My biggest concern is stamina.  Pitching lights out in June doesn't do ya much good if you aren't pitching lights out in September. 

Just spitballin...  I don't know if something like that would work and take pressure off our staff.  I do know that I will be exicted about the 2010 staff with Hudson, Lowe, Jurrjens, Vazquez, and Kawakami.
