But I think that's at least a year away. Maddux was very ineffective towards the end of the year. Rusch is by far better suited for the bullpen and Williams should be packaged in a deal with Walker.

I love that rotation too, but by the time Hill and Guzman are ready, it will be Prior's last year in Chicago, then he heads to the sunny beaches of San Diego.

Sorry to hijack, but is Guzman ready this year? I don't think Hill is but do you guys think Guzman is?

Back on subject I think that, although Rusch is better suited as long relief and a spot starter, he is ahead of Williams right now.

Had it not been for a midseason injury I think Guzman could've gotten the chance to play late last season. He pitched well in the AFL this past fall, so I would think that he will get a chance at some point this season.

The Cubs have Wade Miller too, don't they? I heard he might not be ready till June, but he'd be someone to look out for on the WW.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
