I think the number two guy will be Dallas Keuchel, I’m sure most people will agree with this placement. My reason for him going number two is because I want a left-handed pitcher in between McHugh and the third guy. “The Beard” will be a fixture in the Astros rotation for years.

Brian Del Castillo

Collin McHugh: A nice person to have in the rotation, but would be even better if they were pushed down a slot.

Thomas O’Banion

Scott Feldman: The veteran is clearly the number two-man in this rotation.

Jason Burke

I’m not worried about breaking up the righties and lefties in this rotation. For me, it’s all about stuff, and McHugh has stuff.
