Basically the pitching has to hold up for half a season, I don't see the same lack of development this year as last year for their AA and AAA pitchers. Last season Pivetta and Velasquez both regressed, Eickhoff couldn't bounce back, SD and Arano got injured, DLS, Irvin, Anderson, Davis, Ramos all failed to step up, Garcia wasn't ready.
Out of all the potential arms, only Suarez showed up, and Hammer for 20 games.
I got to think they'll do better this season, they just have to hit on 2-3 (5th starter, a couple back of the pen guys).
DLS has another season under his belt
Damon Jones, Seabold, Howard are 3 additional LHV starters going into this season
Irvin flashed LOOGY potential
Brogdon has the FB, slider combo with a pasable changeup
Garcia has the stuff and is a year older
Romero, Gilbert, Dohy, Davis and Hernandez from the left side and Hammer, Ramos, Dyer and Russ from the right side.
