If The Season Started Today, This Would Be Our Rotation

Yikes! As bad as the starting rotation is 250 miles south in Baghdad-On-The-Hudson, our own starting five is starting to look pretty dismal as well. With nagging injuries to Drew PomeranzEduardo Rodriguez and Steven Wright, manager Alex Cora is now admitting that—if the season started today—the rotation would be: Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, Brian Johnson and Hector Velázquez. Holy mackerel! Looks to us like a 2-3 start (at best) to the new season. This stark reality should reinforce the need to get a veteran starter in here now—like Aníbal Sánchez —to give us some rotation stability at the start of the 2018 campaign.
