Agree with all of that... AND I like the bullpen. I love Buck. The farm system has some talent and rumors are PA may want to sell. Good times.
Now, about those 17 starting rotation candidates...
"Chen threw 5 innings in his debut and did not look very impressive at all. This of course is not reality but was in my dream last night for whatever reason."
__ Fascinating coincidence. You had a troubling dream about our pitcher, Chen, and I had a worrisome dream about my daughter, Chan. I'd trade dreams. But the sun rose this morning and everything's okay. :)
