Paul Byrd might not be able to duplicate Kevin Millwood's AL-best ERA of a season ago, but his veteran leadership will be an asset to the team's young pitchers. The team did its best to fill the holes in the rotation, but the loss of eighth-inning Bob Howry as a free agent makes the bullpen a bit shaky.
