We usually leave matters like this to Mike, but I saw Scranton’s Opening Day roster, and I couldn’t resist.
|Phil Hughes||SP||Zach Duke|
|Tyler Clippard||SP||Ian Snell|
|Ross Ohlendorf||SP||Paul Maholm|
|Matt DeSalvo||SP||Tom Gorzelanny|
|Steven Jackson||SP||Tony Armas, Jr.|
|Chris Britton||SP||Solomon Torres|
|T.J. Beam||SP||Matt Capps|
|Colter Bean||SP||Damaso Marte|
|Justin Pope||SP||Jonah Bayliss|
|Charlie Manning||SP||Juan Perez|
|Ben Kozlowski||SP||Jon Wadin|
|Raul Chavez||C||Ronny Paulino|
|Eric Duncan||1B||Adam LaRoche|
|Chris Basak||2B||Jose Castillo|

It may net me a worse record this year, but overall, I’m taking the team on the left. As much as I like Duke, Gorzelanny, and Capps, Scranton’s rotation has a much higher ceiling.
I would have done this comparison with the Nationals…but that would have been a slam dunk.
