Lackey I think is a must re-sign. I betting, now that he's in control of his emotions when he does do something bad on the mound, there's a possible Cy Young in his future. The kid is good and I'd hate to let someone else get what Bud is building in him.
They need to go after either or both Escobar or Lackey, depending on how they perform. With only two guys on the staff for sure in 2007, they will have to sign at least 2 SP from free agency, and then fill the #5 spot with Jered Weaver or Joe Saunders. 2007 could be expensive.
