As the holiday approaches, there is little going on in trades and acquisitions. Everyone is going home or getting ready for Christmas. An interesting note…even with the huge DBacks signing of Zack Greinke, they are still not in the top 5 rotations as ranked by MLB. The Dodgers are ranked number 5 with Clayton Kershaw, Brett Anderson, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Alex Wood, and Mike Bolsinger. That is a big but nice surprise for me. Ryu expects to take part in Spring Training but feels great now. He is projected to be #2 behind Kershaw. There probably will be another pitcher added to the lineup before February when pitchers and catchers report.
The others are number 4: Indians with Kluber, Carrasco, Salazar, Bauer and Tomlinson. Number 3: Nationals with Scherzer, Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Roark, and Joe Ross. Number 2: Mets (not surprising: Harvey, deGrom, Matz, Syndergaard, and Colon. Number 1: Cubs with Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta, Lester, Lackey, Hammel, Hendricks.
The rankings of the other 4 teams are not surprising to me but I might have ranked the Mets number 1.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope my guys are having a fun holiday but are planning to work hard after the holidays. Hello to all my Dodger friends and players.
