You can never have too much starting pitching. Never settle for mediocrity anywhere in the rotation when you can have better.
I don't think we have the luxury as a mid market team to sign another pitcher and stash away Mike Leake as insurance. We have one of the best staffs in baseball. Just be glad Luke Hudson isn't being rushed out there every five days.
