Really... nobody half decent? Thats funny, I would have described almost ALL my starting pitchers of being exactly "half decent".
I don't have any superstars, but I do have a bunch of workhorse 14-16 game winners with high IP, 150-200 strikeouts, and sub 4.00 ERA. Do you REALLY think Matsuzaka is going to be significantly better than that? Dice-K is tempting, but to be honest, he's a risk, his arm has a LOT of mileage, and its his first year on the MLB schedule. If you are expecting a Chris Carpenter for him, I think you are gonna be waiting a while. If you aren't interested... I guess we'll just have to wait until the regular season.
