  1. Moore typically starts out slow every year.His career minor league ERA in April is around 5,after that it's around 2.

    1. Floethe has been nails but you guys keep putting him down. "Not much upside"...please, he has pitched 21 innings given up 2 walks, 16 K's and 15 hits and 7 of them have been bunts or jammed infield rollers to 1st and 3rd. He just gave up his first homerun in 42 pro innings. Show me someone with "No upside" who has those numbers...have you heard of James Shields, Derek Lowe or Brandon McCarthy, Floethe has the same stuff! Pretty good upside from my perspective!!!

    2. I have seen Floethe pitch and agree with the post above. He has been outstanding, great sinker. Carpenter is good but gets hit a little too much so far. Markel is rounding into shape...this should be a very good staff. You are right they have 8 pitchers who would start for most teams.
