The Rotation is fine
the bullpen is good
theres no need to overuse the kid.
There isn't much bullpen depth. Broxton and Saito are great, but that's about it. If Saito goes down then it's just Broxton. That wouldn't be a good situation for a team with postseason aspirations.
Postseason aspirations? So that depends on Kershaw. Interesting.
I though you need good Starting piching that can go deep into games.
The Dodgers are far better in that regard than any other team in the Div.
Some offense is nice to have too, and the Dodgers are second best in the division in offense.
And only the Padres have better bullpen in the division! But they got no offense. A-Gonzo cant do it alone.
The Rockies has as good of a bullpen as the Dodgers. But their rotation is a suspect. They could melt down in a second.
The Arizona and Giants bullpen are worse.
And why would it be better for the team to put their projected future ace into a bullpen, if thats not really good for development.
Now that the Yankees did it with Chamberlain, it is the only way?
I havent seen Peavy, Verlander, Felix, Zambrano, Kazmir, Lincecum etc.. pitchin in the bullpen a year or two before they started. Or you think those teams had no playoff aspiration?
BTW what is wrong with Beimel, Kuo and Proctor anyway?
