I'm hoping that they're just tossing around numbers and what they're saying is we need one more starter. I'm comfortable with Milton being #4 IF he's healthy (and I understand the whole degenerative knee thingy folks keep throwing around). Healthy last year, he was a good pitcher, not healthy he was chopped liver. I'd like to see Lohse reach his potential too. The key, as I think others are saying, is finding a bonafide #3 (or better).
