The A-Rod story is what it is. We'll a hear a little bit more about it after Jeter does his annual meet and greet with the press today, then things will calm down for a while. I think pressure will build on MLB to release the other names and then make a decision on what to do with the stats generated during the doping era of a player's career.
I"m putting this aside for now and wanting to look forward to different issues.
I took a look at the depth chart for the starting pitchers - assuming no health issues, 4 spots are guaranteed in my view:
Sabathia, Burnett, Wang, and Pettitte.
We then have: Chamberlain, Hughes, Aceves, Ian Kennedy, and Old Prof's long time fave, J.B. Cox.
At this stage, I liked it better with Joba coming out of the pen and his ability to affect more games. I'm curious to see if Hughes can bounce back from his disappointing season last year. I liked what I saw out of Aceves limited action last season. I have no idea what to expect from Kennedy or Cox other than planning on seeing them in SWB.
Who would you guys rather see in the 5th slot? And what are you expecting for the others?
