However, I think there is still some room for improvement on your starting staff. Bullpen will still be good though even with Chapman out of the mix.
Assuming health, I feel awfully confident with a 1-2-3 of Cueto-Latos-Bailey against anyone. Would they be favored on a pure starting against everyone? No, probably not. But they wouldn't be much of an underdog either and with the bullpen, I feel just fine.
