Who do you like and see having a big ST, securing spots on this team? Vets? Young guys?

I think the 3 guys we got for JP come in and have nice STs: Nolasco, Pinto, Mitre

*I think Nolasco has a big ST. Remember how effective he was for stretches last year? I think he builds on that, locates that fastball better and really contributes out of the rotation.

*I'm also hoping Pinto builds on a surprising rookie year. Hitters are uneasy against him, to put it lightly.. Lets hope he controls the walks but is still "effectively wild". If he can do that, we have our closer.

*I think Mitre surprises the most and earns a setup role in the pen with Tank. There was a stretch last year before he got hurt again, iirc, where he was solid out of the pen.
