In Part I, we introduced ourselves and generally discuss the offseason. In Part 2, we discussed the Marcum for Lawrie trade. In Part 3 we discussed the 2011 pitching staff, while in Part 4 we discussed the catching situation. In Part 5 we discussed the Jays' farm system, and in Part 6 we took a look at breakout and fallback candidates. Most recently, in Part 7 we talked about rebound candidates, and whether the Jays are short one position player.
Jesse: With Marcum gone, it would default to the starter for game two of the 2010 season, but Brian Tallet is also gone. All joking aside, I think Romero has to start opening day. Coming off two very good seasons, Romero has shown the ability to dominate the occasional game but also hangs in well when he is not dominating. Given his work ethic and demeanor, I think his transition to ace for the Jays will be seamless.
