And I was afraid he doesn't:
Kenny Williams said he prepared himself for such a talent shift last off-season, when he stockpiled pitchers like Gonzalez, Gavin Floyd, Jon Danks and Nick Masset.
"Part of our plan going into the '06 off-season was pitching depth -- pitching depth to deal as well as pitching depth to use," said Williams, who added minor-league starters Lance Broadway and Jack Egbert are "knocking on the door."
When discussing the Swisher trade one point many made was that Gio isn't all that is portrayed to be (HR tendencies, pitcher's park, repeated AA, didn't pitch in Charlotte's park etc.). OK, but don't tell me the pitching talent acquired last year
Broadway, Floyd, and Masset will fill the pitching talent gap Gio and Fautino would have filled.
