In a playoff series, we have a slight edge in starting pitching, but they have a huge edge in relief. Yes, I get it that Roark (assuming Gio continues current form) and Ross would represent a booster shot to what we've got down there, but they get a similar boost.

And while I think we have a clear edge on offense, I look for them to acquire another piece or two before the deadline that could draw them close enough to us.

So, iow, it's shaping up like a repeat of 2016.
