Here is a rotation I would like to see in the future:
1. Aaron Harang
2. Johnny Cueto
3. Edinson Volquez
4. Bronson Arroyo
5. Fogg/ Belisle/ Bailey in the future
Let me know what all of you think about this new rotation.
Hopefully if the young ones keep it up, this will be about right.
However alot of times the number doesnt really matter.
Example, Volquez is #5 yet faces Myers #1. Now in the playoffs, it would definitely matter.
