Re: Jared Burton
Sometimes I wonder what's more important, solid relief or good starting pitching. If you have the former, I would think you can get by with a little less of the latter, but not the other way around. If your relief pitching isn't reliable, starting pitchers (no matter how good they are) have to press every time they go out.
I'm liking the direction the club has taken with respect to pitching, both in relief and in the starting rotation. But oh, how I'd like to see them stronger up the middle.
Post edit: It's also kind of nice to be worried more about Shortstop, Catcher and Center Fielder than it is about the awfulness of the pitching.
