    Hey Nick! Do you have any concerns about Buehler due to no real spring training and his awful outing? Do you see him realistically going 160-180 IP this year? I’m a little concerned with my rotation, because I went with two young arms in Buehler and Flaherty who both may not rack up the counting stats, including QS.

    Also, thoughts on Kluber vs. Carrasco? Last year, we saw a decline in Kluber’s K/9, KK% and velo. He didn’t look overpowering in his first outing of this season and that downward trend may continue. Carrasco can drive you crazy with the volatility, but he usually ends up with great numbers and ratios at seasons end. Who would you want in a standard roto using QS?
