I'm a huge supporter of Jose Quintana but I think penciling him in as a #2 starter on a good team is a bit ambitious. When he's pitching well, he's vrery good but he still struggles to get late into games, he's only averaging 6 IP per start this season.
Between Sale, Quintana, Rienzo, Santiago, and Johnson, though, I think the Sox probably only have to find one more arm. So that's good.
