That's the closest to what we've seen. I expect Aaron Harang to be somewhere between the 3.75 we expect and the 4.78 we got last year. About 4.00. Not bad and not so good. Aaron's problem is his ability to give up the long ball which I do not expect to change.
As for the others, it's pretty much a crap shoot. I expect Arroyo to do what he always does--good some days and horrible the next. Volquez will not duplicate 2008, but he'll be OK. Cueto...who knows? If he can harnass his temper and get a little bit smarter, he might be the ace. IF. The big question is what happens after that? It's an unknown. Could ge good and could be horribly bad. If a reliable 5th starter can be acquired, I will breathe a bit easier, but if not, and we get Josh Fogg II, Uh Oh.
Too many questions and not enough answers.
