Shapiro did a super job landing missing pieces to round out a terrific infield (DeRosa), and a true closer (Wood). However, who really believes the Indians can compete for a pennant with this rotation? Scott Lewis does look promising though (had a good K/BB ratio as well as an excellent WHIP in the minors), and Reyes is also unproven. Sowers is extremely inconsistent and this is probably a make-or-break year for him. Here's to hoping that Westbrook finds a groove when he returns mid-season. They will need him immensely.
