I think its a pretty decent staff, you are in a 14 team league so i'm sure the talent on each squad is pretty watered down but you still managed to get some solid pitchers. I like Billingsley and I think he will put together great numbers, Cain is in for a nice year as well. GIl Meche and Scott baker are the wildcards here, if they can be productive you are in good shape. Meche is on a much improved Royals team and should be able to give you a respectable number of wins. It's unclear if Baker can return from his injury and pitch like he did in 2008, however I think he is a terrific young pitcher and if healthy should be a great addition to your staff. Escobar is rehabing and is supposedly doing very well along with having high velocity on his pitches, which is a very good sign. Now for the negatives, Verlander....this guy is extremely shaky and I really don't have any confidence in him. If he has any trade value in your league I would package him with a hitter and ship him off. The other issues are the youth that you have in your rotation, Owings, McDonald, Anderson, Braden, and Purcey. They are unproven guys who could be fine or could tank, your guess is as good as mine. Overall I think it will take some luck, but if all things fall into place you should have a pretty nice pitching staff in 2009.
