ROTATION

Johan Santana
Ben Sheets
Gil Meche
Oliver Perez
Mike Pelfrey
John Maine

*Yes there are six starters here. The rotation is so important you have to stockpile. And chances are everyone won't be healthy come Opening Day. If they, well, that's great! Then you can trade Maine for bullpen help. And I didn't address the bullpen because middle relievers are simply not worth paying for. It's best to open the seasonwith what you have in the system and be open to a revolving door all summer until you find the right mix.
