With our currently injured starters our rotation will be very different through out the year. What do you guys think of our chances as people come back?
, Here is how I project our May rotation
I dropped Wellemeyer/Thompson off first, while I feel they are decent starters I don't think they are as good as Pineiro or Clement. Next I dropped Looper since I think he is still a relative unknown as a starter and his contract is up after this season so we could trade him with out much loss to the team, and if Mulder doesn't work out we do have some MiLB arms to utilize or bring one of the other two back into the fold. Lastly I dropped Lohse since around August time I see him being very tradable to a contender looking for an innings eater and we don't control him next season like we do Clement and Pineiro.
The Way I see it, with that rotation, and if they all meet their potential than we might turn into spoilers or contenders in Mid/Late August. It all depends on how far behind we are. At least it sets us up for that rotation next season, which really isn't a bad one at all.
