What do you guys think? My money is on Danks, I think he wins 12 or 13 this year.

Danks. I don't think Gavin is in the rotation come June.

You think he pitches his way out and someone like Broadway comes in or do you think Good Ol KW is going to pick up another starter before the season starts?

Danks.

I like Danks a lot and could see him turning into a very solid starter. If he can repeat his first half over the course of the season, he'll win at least 12 games (provided he gets some run support).

However, if he has an ERA in the mid-4s for the whole season, I don't think 15 wins is out of the question with the offensive potential in our lineup.

Floyd, meanwhile, has talent, but who knows if he'll ever get it.

I think Haeger will get a shot first and then Broadway.

I don't believe we'll trade for another starter. If we do, it'll probably be in spring and because Crede is looking like a stud.

No one on the 40 man roster can catch Haeger.

I say Danks as well, as he already has the near-full season experience, he's got confidence in his stuff; and as a left handed pitcher, he's got a bit of an edge.

Now, I think Gavin can become a solid #5 pitcher; but he needs to show it as early as possible. He can't be a weak link like he has been to even remain in the majors for much longer.

It's unfortunate. I think he's a better bet to be a servicable player than the other two.

Danks, hopefully 13-17.

I don't know about the idea of Haeger starting, but haven't you said numerous times that Lucy can?

Is Donny on the 40 man roster?

If so then I was wrong in my initial statement.

I'm not so sure Gavin is in the rotation for the whole year either, but either way Danks should end up with more, in the 13-15 area, IMO.

I'm predicting Danks with 14 wins and Floyd with 11

I think this is an easy one....Danks is the answer! For some reason it just seems to me like Gavin might be a tad bit soft mentally...i like the makeup of Danks, it doesn't seem like too much gets to him. I still have a feeling KW is gonna pick up another starter and Floyd might be the odd one out of the rotation. A better question here is how many wins can we get from Contreras, realistically speaking? I really don't know....as of right now our starting pitching scares me!!!

Another vote for Mr. Danks.

Let's see...I have Floyd down for 2 wins, so I guess Danks.

Danks will win more but Id be perfectly happy with each having 12-15 wins. If that happens we are in the post season.

Danks with 11 to 13. Floyd with 8 or 9. Where's the poll??
