I agree (although I think Cease is close to a given). Overall, I think the org. is way light in pitching depth; of course I've been saying that for years. They won 72 games last season against a pretty watered down schedule. They can't start trading for short-term players.

They did trade Eaton at the right time with his bloated WAR, but that was happenstance. They would have traded him anyway. The Nats won the world series because they could and did match the Astros' front-line starting pitching in a short series.
