We can't survive with this rotation and middle relief.

Need quite a bit IMO.
You're probably right, we probably will be seeing a lot of 10-9 games like in 1977.

Save the high-leverage spots for Jones and Soria, who could be traded for value midseason.
Agreed. If anything, I look at Minaya (whom I believe has an option remaining) as a prime candidate to shuffle between Chicago and Charlotte to get a fresh arm up here during stretches where the bullpen is overworked. Infante and Bummer both have options as well. Soria, Santiago, Jones, Farquhar, and Avilan cannot be sent down.

With this iffy bullpen, I'm sure we will need to utilize Charlotte's bullpen on a number of occasions this season, and not just for DL stints, either.

Even Dylan Covey? C'mon.

I feel like I led the crusade against Robin, so I agree 100%. It's so nice to see a healthy clubhouse again.

Robin had his faults but to scapegoat him for every problem in this organization at this time is a little too much.
