Again, definitions. I think he’s finally turned into a good middle of the rotation starter. For me there’s maybe 20-30 guys in all of baseball I’d label as Aces or 2’s, Gibson wouldn’t be one of them
If Berrios is your 2, Gibson your 3.. it might be a pretty good rotation. Make that 1+2... meh
Therein lies the rub for 2019. I think Berrios and Gibson (assuming the last year is what he now is) are a strong #2 and #3 in a contending rotation. Santana and Odorizzi could easily be sold as numbers 3 and 4. Who's No. 1? There isn't one at AAA so the AAA guys become #5 and everyone moves up one. Now you have a decent but not great rotation. Better than most years, but probably not enough unless Berrios takes yet another step forward.
