  1. Colon could easily lose a spot. He's at that break down age and already coming off of an injury to start the season. Griffin coming into his sophomore season is not a dominating force by any means. He could easily regress hard enough to open a spot for Straily if Colon does in fact hold up. Bret Anderson, he already tweaked his neck late into spring training. Sure he hasn't missed a start from it, but that's not a good sign to start a season. When is this guy ever healthy? History tells us he is good for a little over 150 innings so he's likely to miss a few starts. So it's not like he's some scrub trying to weasel his way into a rock solid rotation. This rotation has plenty of question marks whether it's where Colon's skill level stands at 40+ off of an injury, to Milone's sophomore season, to Brett Anderson's inevitable trip to the DL. There are plenty of likely paths into the bigs. I honestly am certain that Straily is a more talented pitcher than all 3 of those guys to boot. Yes I think Parker is quickly approaching elite pitching status and Milone is solid and these guys aren't going anywhere. Straily's top end upside is easily better than Milone's. Hell I'll even say his top end upside is higher than Parker's. Colon could easily lose a spot. He's at that break down age and already coming off of an injury to start the season.

I am as big a Dan Straily fan as there is on this board, but but saying that he's more "talented" than Brett Anderson is completely off the reservation. He's not. On really any measure.
