Ricky Romero, Brandon Morrow and Kyle Drabek will establish themselves as the best 1-2-3 punch in the AL East.
Romero, at 26 years old, had a fantastic 2010 campaign finishing with a 3.73 ERA and a 14-9 record. He became the dominant lefty that Alex Anthopoulos knew he would be. He has nasty off-speed pitches that help to pile up the K's that make him the ace of the staff.
Brandon Morrow was shut down toward the end of the season which gives us the sign that the Jays know that he is something special. His 4.49 ERA is less than desirable, but his upside is off the charts. This flamethrower can mow down hitters with the best of them. His one-hit, 17 K performance against the Rays is enough to drive that point home. Just like Romero, Morrow is only 26 years old and is finding his stride at the right time.
Kyle Drabek is ready to burst onto the big league scene. After being looked at as an untouchable prospect in the Phillies' farm system, he became the centerpiece for the Jays in the Roy Halladay deal. It is time for this move to pay dividends. His 22-11 record in Double-A over the last two seasons has given him a shot to break the Opening Day roster. He will do more than just make the rotation, but will establish himself as force to be reckoned with on the rubber.
