Rotations

There has been much debate over pitching that I had to figure out some things for me that I would like to share. Here is a list of rotations with 06 ERA and the average ERA. I added Batista to ours which is a mid 4 ERA. This is assuming Clemens and Pettite are not coming back to the Astros and I didn't add the Pirates and Brewers. I figured the Reds, Cubs, Astros, and Cardinals. (Except Cubs all were players last year.)

Cubs
C. Zambrano 3.41
Lilly 4.31
Hill 4.17
Miller 4.57
Marshall 5.59
Avg 4.41 ERA

Reds
Harang 3.76
Arrroyo 3.29
Milton 5.19
Lohse 5.83
Michalak 4.89
AVG 4.592

Astros
Oswalt 2.98
Williams 3.65
Hirsh 6.04
Rodriguez 5.64
Albers 6
AVG 4.862

Cardinal
Carpenter 3.09
Reyes 4.68
Wainwright 4.09 (projected)
Wells 6.50
Batista 4.58
AVG 4.588

My opinions on the next page

 

Walt in my opinion does not have to focus on pitching. (This of course is assuming we aquire Batista.) This shows that we are right in there rotation-wise with the rest of the Central. (Year to Date) It also gives us the ability to pocket the left over money of 105 mil and honestly make a push for a mid-season salary dump. We really don't have the chips for a major trade so I think we should be patient and use our strength (money) to our advantage. Maybe we get lucky and pick up something off the scrap heap. (eckstienesque) I just don't see this FA market bearing any fruit.
