As of right now this is probably the best starting rotation the Reds have had since 99..........I know that's like comparing a skunk to the aroma arising from a gas station restroom. We have 3 guys that are fairly young, and legitimate MLB pitchers in Arroyo, Harang, and Claussen (although I being optimistic on that one). The problem imo is that we have no true stud # 1 ace, and therefore those guys who should be a 3,4,5 are our 1,2,3. If we had a D-Train (just throwing his name in there because of the rumors) as our 1 and then follow that up with those 3 then fellas that's not a bad rotation. Granted we are stuck with Milton/Williams/Wilson at the backend of the rotation, but IF Milton was ever healthy he's a pretty good 5. Imo the starting rotation is light years ahead of where it was 2 years ago when we had Wilson as our 1, and 4 bums that weren't MLB pitchers behind him. At least now we have guys who actually belong in the "big show". If we were able to aquire or develop a true #1 stud, and upgrade the bullpen (which is still a horrid mess) than we could be competitive in the next year or 2.....jmho.
