Am I being overly optomistic when I think that the bullpen could be pretty damn good in a year or two. Burton, Bray, and McBeth all have "lights out" stuff if they put it togeather. They all throw hard, with a good breaking ball, and can miss alot of bats. If they turn out, those three could shorten a game to 6 innings. That would also make the starting pitching staff better. I believe that it is better to have a medicore rotation and a great bullpen, then the other way around. A great bullpen can improve a medicore rotation.
I realize that Burton and Bray have a small sample size, and McBeth has yet to show anything at the big league level, but can't a man hope?
