Now there might be question marks with Kopech and Lopez for different reasons, but the Sox starting should be significantly improved from the crap shoot of cast offs and maybes it is this year.
I really don't think you can count on Rodon to provide much of anything to the rotation at this point. He just can't seem to stay healthy.

However, I do agree that starting next year a rotation of Giolito, Kopech and Cease would vastly improve the team's ability to compete next year.

Go Sox!!!
