This is the 106mph fastball in the chin this staff may face...after an abnormal year for pitching health I expect to bombs to drop this year. Losing multiple starters for long stretches may be the "evener". Hold on to your pitching cuz you never have too much of it. Last season was historically rare....going to the totally different Victorian era to find a peer. Ain't happ'ning again guys...
