Here's a Thought: Nathaniel's (Extremely Premature) Idea of Who Should Break Camp With the Oakland A's (Pitchers)

Continuing with the theme of last night's position players article (see: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/310728-heres-a-thought-nathaniels-extremely-premature-idea-of-who-should-break-camp-with-the-oakland-as-position-players), here is a look at who, among the current pitchers in the Oakland organization, is best served to break camp with the team in 2010.

As I said in the other article, a lot can happen between now and then, but this operates on an "if the season started tomorrow" premise. This is not a long-term setup, necessarily, but it's simply who's best-suited in the green and gold in April. I expect several players to step forward and alter this setup, particularly the rotation, fairly early in 2010.

Each slide will list a player, from those who are shoe-ins for the team to those who just make the cut. Following the 12 pitchers themselves, I'll make a 13th slide that shows how the pitching staff would be set up, with an explanation for why.
