In response to phxvlsoxfan's comment:
Agree on the offensive side, but I think 4 good arms are needed, plus at least that many projects.
The best of the returnees from the disaster of a '12 staff are:
Bailey (if healthy), Buchholz, Doubront?, Lester, Atchison?
On the bubble/likely to make team:
Tazawa (hope they found his nitch), Mortonsen?, Miller?, De La Rosa?
Those who will have to earn a job:
Bard???, Breslow, Carpenter, Hill, Melancon, Aceves/Padilla (willing to gamble on these wackos?), Stewart
And of course there's Mr. Lackey??????
Not a pretty picture (pun intended)
Breslow and Carpenter already proved themselves IMO, and Melancon looked really good the last few games.
