I agree about the Boston staff. A four game series could really be frustrating when you face Pedro for game 1, get completely off-balance with Wakefield for 2, eat Schillings heat for 3, try to hit Lowe's breaking ball all day for game 4, and face a pretty good bullpen in Timlin, Sauerbeck, and eventually Foulke. Replacing Walker with Reese tightens up the defense in the middle, and that alone might get your starters another inning or two every start. Less wear and tear on the relievers is always good. Plus adding Foulke will add to everybodies win totals.
I also like the Mariners staff.
But back to KC, I love the fact they are lefty loaded. They are about the only team that is. However, I do question the bullpen. MacDougal came out hot last year then fizzled. Has that been solved? Those 4 big Boston guys, all right-handers. I think D May will have an awesome year this season.
