MUTTON CHOP POWER!
If this report is true, and considering its got direct quotes from McGowan saying he's ready it seems pretty likely then its gonna make spring training just a little bit more interesting as the race to fill out the starting rotation is going to made even more competitive with the presence of mutton chops.
For 5 spots in the rotation there's now 9 guys (McGowan, Romero, Cecil, Rzepczynski, Richmond, Jansenn, Marcum, Morrow, and maybe Purcey) competing for them, 10 if Brian Tallet leaves the bullpen, and 11 down the road if Jesse Litsch returns from his Tommy John surgery during the season. The competition among the pitchers should serve to give everyone enough of a kick in the ass to pitch above their potential, and if nothing else provide enough fodder for speculation to keep people throwing out ridiculous ideas for a better rotation until at least the middle of May.
