    I'm not sure how many games we'll be playing so I'll just list all 5 SP.

    Chicago White Sox

    Rotation (2010 stats):

    1) John Danks - 15-11 W/L, 3.72 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 162 K, 70 BB, 18 HRA, 213 IP
    2) Gavin Floyd - 10-13 W/L, 4.08 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, 151 K, 58 BB, 14 HRA, 187 IP
    3) Mark Buehrle - 13-13 W/L, 4.28 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 99 K, 49 BB, 17 HRA, 210.1 IP
    4) Edwin Jackson - 10-12 W/L, 4.47 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, 181 K, 78 BB, 21 HRA, 209.1 IP
    5) Jake Peavy - 7-6 W/L, 4.63 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 93 K, 34 BB, 13 HRA, 107 IP {missed a lot of time due to injury}

    Comments:

    Danks and Floyd will have to be the leaders of the staff. Danks was very good last season but Floyd had an up and down year. Floyd has had an ERA around 4 for 3 straight years and in the AL that is not too shabby. Jackson has always had the potential to be an ace but control issues have limited his effectiveness. He put up very good numbers after he was traded to Chicago, lowering his ERA from 5.16 in ARZ to 3.24. If he pitches like that for me he will certainly move up in the rotation. Buehrle is a junk baller with limited strikeout ability. He relies on command and changing speeds to keep the hitter off balance. He has had an excellent career given the limitations of his stuff and I hope his success continues with me. Peavy is the ultimate wild card. He sports a career 3.36 ERA but the overwhelming majority of his innings came in Petco Park against weaker NL competition. Even if he comes back at full strength it is hard to predict what kind of numbers he would post in the AL.

    Bullpen:

    LHP Matt Thornton - 2.67 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 81 K, 20 BB, 3 HRA, 60.2 IP
    RHP Jesse Crain - 3.04 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 62 K, 27 BB, 5 HRA, 68 IP
    LHP Chris Sale - 1.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 32 K, 10 BB, 2 HRA, 23.1 IP
    RHP Sergio Santos - 2.56 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, 56 K, 26 BB, 2 HRA, 51.2 IP
    RHP Tony Pena - 5.10 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, 56 K, 45 BB, 10 HRA, 100.2 IP

    Comments:

    The Pale Hose are unlikely to commit to a single 9th inning RP. We believe in using our best relievers in the most important situations and that is not always the 9th. Thornton and Sale should be very tough for our LH opponents as they both bring big time fastballs and good numbers in their careers (limited as Sale's is). Crain looks to be the most dependable of the righties but relievers are notoriously volatile so it could just as well be Santos or Pena getting the high leverage appearances. Santos is a converted shortstop so I'm hoping that his control improves with more experience. Pena had a down year in '10 but I don't forsee using him for as many innings as Ozzie did. Hopefully he can do better with a lighter workload.

    NY Mets

    Rotation (2010 stats):

    1) Johan Santana - 11-9 W/L, 2.98 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 144 K, 55 BB, 16 HRA, 199 IP (missed time due to injury)
    2) Mike Pelfrey - 15-9 W/L, 3.66 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 113 K, 68 BB, 12 HRA, 205 IP
    3) Jonathan Niese 9-10 W/L, 4.20 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 148 K, 62 BB, 20 HRA, 173.2 IP
    4) R.A. Dickey - 11-9 W/L. 2.84 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 104 K, 42 BB, 13 HRA, 174.1 IP
    5) Chris Young - 2-0 W/L, 0.90 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 15 K, 11 BB, 1 HRA, 20.0 IP (injured almost all season)


    I'm not as down on this rotation as most Mets fans are as I see potential. Johan Santana will miss the 1st half of the season which means we may have to rely on Oliver Perez or Chris Capuano to fill one of the final rotation spots. R.A. Dickey was a nice suprise last year and is a big innings eater for us like most Knuckleball pitchers are. We have some talent in the minors who I think still need another year to develop ala Jenrry Mejia. We lost alot of depth in the bullpen from a year ago so it will be interesting to see the spring training battles to fill out those spots. Despite his off the field leagal troubles I expect Francisco Rodriguez (Krod) to have a bounce back 30+ saves season.
