Am i the only one that is worried about not having a fifth starter ? I truly think that Angel management believes that we can get by with Mosley until Escobar is ready. What if he doesn't come back, wouldn't it make more sense if he does to bring him back ( health permitting ) to the bullpen negating over work to his shoulder. Wouldn't it make sense to look at Pedro Martinez or Mark Mulder with an invite to spring training with no liability if they didn't perform, but maybe very cheap insurance ? Or is everyone counting on Nick A. to come out of nowhere and be a star this year, i don't think so ?
I still believe we can put a trade together and get Peavey from the Padres without hurting our overall depth. Could there be a team out there that is in desperate need for a centerfielder and would look at GMJ if he is healthy and we share in his salary coupled with Figgins for a 5th starter.
We only have four starters and if one goes down we are in deep trouble, we have absolutely no depth in our starting rotation. Last year we had Escobar, Lack, Weaver, Santana and Garland ... when two went down we had Saunders and Moseley and if you remember Moseley didn't set the world on fire, thank God for Saunders and John not being out to long.
We don't have that depth this year, i would love to hear your comments if you were GM and could address this issue. As everyone keeps saying championships are won with pitching, at least that is what everyone keeps preaching.
