Pretty depressing picture. Losing 3/5ths of your rotation in a week, and we never recovered from Bautista getting hurt. Doesn't even include Lawrie gone for a month and Romero falling apart. We can't be that unlucky next year can we?!
I hope not. Adding Reyes, Johnson and Buerhle makes us VERY good. If we can add a second basemen and another hitter (preferably LF) through trade or FA, this team should have a shot at the World Series. Obviously anything can happen, but we just became really good and if Izturis is the backup 2nd basemen/SS this team will be able to get through most injuries in the infield with little damage. If Ricky can rebound and guys stay healthy there's no telling what this team can do.

Love the starting rotation!

1. Johnson
2. Romero
3. Morrow
4. Buerhle
5. Happ/veteran righty
