I definitely don't see that in his comments. I see mid rotation potential and could be a #3 if healthy and should be ready sometime in 2018. With the lack of any sort of depth in the rotation I think this is a bad plan.
The fun of baseball is all the differing opinions - none of which we can prove - we can only wait, but I would like to see
Gibson - actually I expect him, but don't necessarily want him
Romero the first in when the inevitable happens.
Sleger number seven in the rotation sequence.
I can ride with that another year and see where all the bats and maturity develops before we spend for that "last Piece".
In some ways I am concerned that their bats might not meet our expectations - Kepler regressed, can he progress?Who is Sano - can he put it together.Does Byron have a full season of great coming?Is Rosario going to plateau or progress?Is Polanco the answer?Can Mauer continue his upsurge in his advancing years and advancing contract?
Lots of fuel for the hot stove and we haven't even covered the bullpen.
