Injury plagued is a phrase I would not use to describe EZ's 2006. "Came down with an injury due to the complete inept handling of his manager" is a little better.
Belisle has back issues. He will always have back issues. But his stuff is light years ahead of Saarloos'.
So Salmon is unproven, but half the board has Bailey as the #3 starter by June?
