Burnett? He's as good as gone already. Can't really see them spending the $$$ to keep him.
Assuming Olsen and Vargas will be in the rotation, I'm hoping it'll be something like:
Willis, Beckett, Vargas, Valdez/Moehler/Villone/some cheap FA RHP, Olsen
That would yield a lefty/righty/lefty/etc. rotation except when it wraps back around to Willis.
I own Beckett and Olsen in my dynasty-like league and would prefer to see them slotted as low as possible in the rotation to minimize facing tough opposing SPs. Although Olsen should probably be slotted #3 based on talent, Vargas will have more MLB experience. They'll probably also want to handle Olsen w/ a little more care next year since he had to shut it down w/ elbow inflammation back over a month ago -- I'm still trying to find out how that's going.
