I'm going to be very upset if Hochever begins the season in the rotation. He's a bad pitcher, and has only gotten worse as the season has gone along.
Moose and especially Hosmer need to be better at the plate next season if we're going to compete for anything. I'm optimistic.
I wouldn't mind if we brought in a veteran 2nd baseman at this point, although pickings appear to be slim in the free agent pool. Org clearly doesn't believe in Gio.
Otherwise, go get some starting pitching. Edwin Jackson, A. Sanchez, Marcum, Peavy, Haren, McCarthy, E. Santana, etc. are all guys that may be available as free agents. Add two, re-sign Guthrie and let the existing rotation guys fight for those last two spots.
Q: Did you know something was wrong right away?
