    ^^That would seem to make the most sense. Sucks for Morrow, but oh well.

    Dicks

    It should be

    Dickey
    Johnson
    Morrow
    Buerhle
    Romero

    But if ppl put stock into the whole lefty following lefty I guess morrow has to be 4. Any of the 5 could have the best yr. sick problem!! And to the sox comment, I'd want tough lefties to battle ellisbury and papi not big righties to battle Napoli no?

    Morrow vs other teams 3s, rickyro vs other teams no 4......common team stay healthy.

    You know, with this roatation.. There is no real difference between #1 and #5.. We currently have 2 #1s (Johnson, Dickey) and 3 #2s (Morrow,Romero and Buerhle)

    None of these guys really strike me as the types to care what # they are placed in the rotation. Dickey will be the anchor, after that you just want to split it up based on repertoire.

    As others have mentioned:
    Dickey
    Morrow/Johnson
    Buehrle
    Johnson/Morrow
    Romero

    makes the most sense.

    You have to have Dickey as your number one, he's the Ace and reigning CY young winner.

    Morrow will be a number one, if he isn't already. He put up similar stats last season to Sabathias 2011 season. He is that good.

    Because of the hype it will probably be Dickey. Even AA said that he'd likely be the #1 on PTS with McCown.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Yeah, it'd be wise of Gibby to do that. Both Morrow and Romero are good but at this point they're... I can't believe I'm saying this... but they're both the weakest out of the 5. What does that tell you? lol ****...

    Did you ever think you'd see Vernon Wells hitting in the leadoff spot? Gibby is the guy to do messed up things.

    ideally I would like to have one of Johnson or Morrow follow Dickey just to **** him hitters

    My rotation would look like

    Dickey
    Morrow
    Buehrle
    Johnson
    Romero
    This. Imagine how much of a mind**** it would be for hitters to go from facing Dickey one day to Brandon Morrow the next? Morrow is primed for a huge year especially with a weaker AL East than we may have ever seen. I'm calling it right now, if he stays healthy, he'll compete for the Cy Young.

    Yeah, but it's an exceptional rotation though. Most teams don't have this kind of quality 1-5.

    I think Romero and Buehrle are the weakest, but yeah, the point remains. You don't want to have lefties back to back when you have this type of rotation versatility, anyway.
