I'd also note that we've traded away drafdt picks Pivetta and Jesus Luzardo, both of whom are primed to become very good pitchers.  Pivetta really looked like he was last year, he just had a terrible defense and terrible BABIP and strand luck.  He can be a mid-rotation guy for sure.  Jesus looks like the Ace in Oakland already.  Reynaldo Lopez still has some potential as a serviceable back-end rotation guy.  Giolitto I think was and is a bust.  So if we hadn't gone all in for reliever help, we could have Pivetta and Jesus rounding out the rotation instead of Sanchez and Hellickson.  Then we'd have 3/5 our rotation as home grown and 2 mega free agents.
