If we could have a 2008 rotation of:

I think we'd definately be in the wild card hunt (at least) all season. I believe 2008 is Arroyo's last season under contract. Hopefully, we'll sign Harang to an extension. Bailey should be in the rotatoin to start 2008, and I'm guessing Travis Wood makes the rotation at some point that season. That's the year I'm looking to and will be disappointed if we don't make the post season that year.
I actually expect Zach Ward to be the starter after Homer to get an extended shot in the rotation.
I know I've read where some here have posted that he's best suited for the pen, but with his apparent makeup and college experience - if he can continue his extreme propensity for throwing ground balls, I'd give him a shot at the bottom of the rotation first.
I know that they haven't really challenged him yet, but I think that will change soon and excelerate next year.
