The worst possible scenario has bore fruit as far as the rotation. Sean Marshall, who is proven to lack the stamina to be a starter and is very much needed in the bullpen, has likely wrapped up a spot. Carlos Silva and all of his bonafide awfulness probably have too. So a rotation to start the season of Dempster, Zambrano, Wells, Marshall and Silva. Humbling, isn't it.
Meanwhile, that leaves Lou to force this bullpen...Marmol, Grabow, Gorzellaney, Samardizija (he has no business earning a spot, but alas he will because Hendry has a special set of rules for his bonus baby), and Caridad the wunderkind.
God save the queen if anything should sideline Dempster or Zambrano. Or if Lilly can't come back to 90% his historical level. The bullpen is a nightmare waiting to unfold, unless Marmol and Grabow pitch out of their minds. Which they could do, at least for a couple months.
