That's quite a bit right there.
Every team has a list like that .... and a whole lot more. The fact that the Reds got 30+ starts out of every member of their starting rotation more than offsets a few injuries in the bullpen. The Reds had a historically healthy season in the rotation. A team with five guys over 30 starts has only happened nine times in the history of the game. That is EXTREMELY unlikely to happen again.
