T.R. Sullivan has a article this afternoon on the club's expectation from its pitchers. There are some statistical reminders of the ugly past as well as a few feel good quotes:
"Injuries kill you no matter who your guys are," reliever Eddie Guardado said. "If we stay healthy, we can do some damage."
As for Brandon McCarthy, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said, "If he's healthy, he can pitch. He knows what he wants to do and has a plan. If he can keep the ball down and throw his slider, he'll be lights out."
