I'm just blown away by these numbers and wondering how they could improve? Which makes the Chapman addition so fascinating.
The rotation should be a strength, but I don't think they can repeat 2012 if for no other reason than they had a rotation where I don't believe a single starter actually missed a start all year. Someone is likely to be injured this year and it will likely hurt the numbers. Luck can be a lady but she can also be something less than.
