Breaking Down the Rotation

The link above is to Ocker's article, where he at least goes through the candidates one by one (as compared with Ingraham's sad-sack article on the same). But I'm not interested in discussing Ocker; I'd rather talk about the team. Here's how I see the order as of today. Note: I don't care about the actual order that they roll out, nor do a care about the label of "a #2 starters," but this is a ranking of how firm each guy's place in the rotation, assuming they are healthy. I'm putting in the ERAs projected by CHONE and then PECOTA (playing time adjusted). (If we think that's too much from BP, I'll take it out) These are the big 6 candidates for our rotation (Why 6? Someone will be hurt in spring training): 1. Westbrook [4.38/5.00] 2. Masterson [4.36/4.20] 3. Carmona [4.72/4.99] 4. Laffey [4.68/5.34] 5. Talbot [5.25/5.13] 6. Huff [4.87/4.96] These are the Near Future Kids: - Rondon [5.14/4.54] - Carrasco [5.26/4.85] These are the Outsiders, with bullpen potential - Pino - Ambriz [5.19/] This guy is lost in the wilderness somewhere - SLewis [4.78/4.62] These guys (ok, 2 of them) will be knocking on the door at this time next year - Hagadone - Putnam - Gomez -Barnes We're still paying this guy - Reyes [5.00/4.94] Your #3 starter for the Norfolk Tides - Sowers [5.02/5.02]
