Here's my assessment:

Pros:  I'd definitely going to get a lot of wins behind Santana, Dice-K, Lilly, Greinke, Pettitte, Cook and Galarraga.   Whether or not guys like Pettitte and Cook can keep their ERAs and WHIP at reasonable levels is a question.  I could definitely win the saves category if Morrow and Ziegler pan out.   Also, almost everyone's got some pop.  Choo could be a sleeper.  Who knows...   Maybe Shef may get some burn down the stretch too.  I hope Brandon Wood comes up soon.

Cons: No real big, unquestionable boppers.  Chipper is older and an injury risk... and who knows what to expect out of Delgado.  Let's of guys I can count on for 25/80, but not a lot guaranteed for 30/100.  If Morrow and Ziegler don't pan out, I may need to find saves elsewhere.
