Myers is a bum. Look at his career totals for pete's sake.
His WHIP is outright scary. If you think this guy is going to be worth squat you are basically hoping to catch lightning in a bottle. The man is 36.
Farnsworth has had one decent year but we all know the guy can lose his control at any time.
Sturtz is a mop-up man and nothing more.
And let's not talk about Villone.
The bullpen is at the very best equal to last year's mess assuming Farnsworth can do a decent job. That is not good.
The starting staff is a bunch of older, injury prone guys led by gopher ball Johnson and a rapidly regressing Moose. Chacon may actually be their best pitcher.
And while the offense will light up the board during the regular season, we all saw what the great A-Choke and others managed in the playoffs against notable Cy Young pitching candidates like Paul Byrd, Jarrod Washburn and John Lackey....i.e. they choked vs mediocre SPs. As someone noted, it was not the pitching that let this team down in the 2005 playoffs, it was the disappearance of the offense, particularly the heart of the order come crunch time.
This team is built to win 100 games in the regular season and lose int he first rouynd of the playoffs unless they get guys liek RJ and Pavano tto step up on the staff and the offense decides not to take a vacation once the playoffs start.
