After last nights game, and frankly watching Medlen my mind is boggled. So serious questions for you all. What will be our starting rotation next year? We have a crazy amount of starting pitching. Lets take a look Hudson Hanson Medlen Beachy(at some point late next year) Delgado Teheran Malholm Minor Gilmartin(pry not right off the bat, but kid has looked decent in AAA) So thats 9 capable starting pitchers, 7 of which could all be ready by the start of the season. I dont even know where to start with this rotation. I would guess Hudson is the only lock out of the 9(Beachy would be too but he is hurt). I think we have a really good chance to solidfy the rotation for years to come and make a big move in a trade. We basically have 4 guys we could offer a team for a big name player. I dont know who it would be or anything, but I dont see any reason for us not to make a big move. Thoughts???
