Agreed, this pitching staff is really coming together at the perfect time....
With westbrook's extension signed today that leaves our rotation for next year looking something like
Carpenter (if healthy)
How do you see it shaping up?
The lohse situation is intriguing to me because he has put together two solid years in a row but will be 34 at the beginning of next season and with westbrook resigned there is no clear cut spot for him in the rotation......
I wouldn't mind putting kelly in the bullpen for a year similar to what we did with waino.
As for Shelby Miller I believe he will start 2013 in the AAA rotation but will at some point be ready for the big leagues before the all-star break....
Other pitching prospects such as Martinez Rosenthal Gast Wacha and Jenkins all will need more time in the minors but may make solid pushes for a MLB roster spot in the next year or two.
