Corey Brock at MLB.com thinks that Padres followers can look for a five-man rotation in the starting pitcher position sometime this season, and the starting five aren’t just run-of-the mill substitutes (even if most of the star credit belongs to one player). “Granted, the majority of these imposing statistical accomplishments and awards belong to veteran pitcher Greg Maddux,” he allowed in a January 30th blog entry on mlb.com. Even if Maddux has the most impressive string of accomplishments, a pitcher like Jake Peavy is someone to watch. Last season saw him lead the league in ERA, victories, and strikeouts, win the National League Cy Young Award, and score a $52 million contract extension. Mark Prior could be just as impressive if he can make a full recovery from an April shoulder surgery.
