Summary

The lineup should be good enough, the bullpen is improved and the rotation gets a nice add with Charlie Morton. The bench isn't very exciting, but has versatility and if there is a DH, Bruce/Kingery would be probably get the most at-bats.

I think this team is fairly well balanced and competitive, but I don't think they win a division. The Braves are definitely better, the Mets probably will be and the Nats/Marlins would be right there too. A good chance at a Wild Card though and would be a tough team to face in a playoff series with this pitching staff.

Losing VV hurts the rotation depth, but he was just too expensive to have as a bullpen/6th starter type. Injuries to the rotation could be a problem. I guess next up would be Medina or Suarez. Maybe Hale for a spot-start. Not stellar options.
