IMO we have a fairly good pen. Cordero, Masset & Rhodes are solid. Burton should pitch better overall in 2010 than in 2009. Herrera had a nice 2009.
After that we are not at all strong. I would not say we have 0 spots open for competition. Fisher was pretty generic in 2009. Lincoln was hurt and is getting hit hard this spring. Owings is ok as a placholder but did nothing in 2009 that should guarantee him a major league job going forward.
