Who do we really want to see in the rotation?
Obviously we have Guthrie and Uehera as 1-2
I'd love to see what Hill can do this year, but to rely on him for anything is foolish, in an ideal world he is our number 3 .
I'm pretty much sick to my stomach thinking about Hendrickson or Eaton pitching at all for us. To paraphrase Bill James, they are starting pitchers...and I guess if you shot me into space that would make me an astronaut. If we are going to punt on the rotation and let absolutely horseshit pitchers out there, we may as well just give Penn the ball and see what he can do, we know Eaton and Hendrickson stink. I suppose it makes sense to give Liz one last chance at starting, but I feel like he is going to end up in the pen, and it may make sense to try to get him used to that role sooner rather than later.
I think I would go with Guthrie, Koji, Hill (if possible), and then a mix of Penn, Pauley, Albers and Bergensen, maybe even David Hernandez, who can't possibly be worse than what we've got going on now, even he won't ever make it as a starter.
Not that this is an option, but I sort of think Matusz would be our 2nd best pitcher this year....which is really depressing.
