Our future

It seems that the future of this team seems to hinge on the future success of the trio of Cahill, Anderson, and Mazzaro. Perhaps, Gio Gonzalez can also be thrown in there. Since I live in NY, I can't help but compare our trio to the Yankees' trio of Ian Kennedy, Philip Hughes, and Joba, At this time last year, everyone was raving about the Yankees' trio of young guns and we now know how that turns out; only Joba shows promise of being a very good starter. To be fair, Hughes and Kennedy are still young but the pundits are no longer raving about their capabilities. The Yanks have so little confidence in Hughes and Kennedy that they spend a billion dollars on CC and Burnett.

This year, so far, no one even thinks our trio is as good as the Yanks' trio of yesteryear. The Yanks' trio put up much better minor league numbers than ours, and yet 2 of them seemingly flamed out. Seeing how common it is for most minor leaguers to flame out in the majors, should we hold high hopes for Cahill, Anderson, and Mazzaro/Gonzalez? Perhaps it will be considered successful if only one of them pan out? Anderson, perhaps?
