Starting pitching, actually pitching depth in general, is the most important thing in this game and teams are going to pay for it. What would you consider Kyle Lohse in St. Louis (with Carpenter and Wainwright)? Because he was being paid $11.875M the past two seasons and will - without a doubt - get more in FA this off season to be a 2 or 3 somewhere else.
I'm not necessarily complaining, I understand proven solid starting pitching comes at a premium price. Hopefully he comes back and becomes the pitcher he was pre-injury.

I'm glad we have another solid rotation this year (on paper, at least).
