Everything is a question mark until results come in.
However the point is the rotation on paper is a hell of a lot better than what they had in the past. Ricky isn't the go to ace anymore. They won't have rookies fighting it out over the last 1 or 2 top 5 pitching rotation spots in spring training(unless of course some of the guys you listed above experience some injuries). Even then they are a lot deeper now because guys that would have been candidates for starting jobs last year will now all be pushed to the bullpen or will be 1st call ups from the minors if need be.
