Pitching Staff projection

Pitching staff should be better this year than last year because I don’t expect injuries to 12 pitchers to occur. Starting five: Orlando Hernandez, Tom Glavine, Oliver Perez, John Maine, Jorge Sosa. Relievers: Scott Schowenweis, Ambiorix Burgos, Pedro Feliciano, Duaner Sanchez, Aaron Heilman, Chan Ho Park, and Billy Wagner. I believe Chan Ho Park could replace Darren Oliver as a long reliever.  I don’t believe he is as good, but more consistency in the starting rotation should reduce the need for a long reliever. Our starting pitching will be bolstered by the return of Pedro Martinez and our relief pitching will be bolstered by Guillermo Mota. If Billy Wagner shows mediocre in closing situations, I think Mota may split relief duty. This is only a prediction. Of course only Spring Training will tell.
