A look at NL East rotations

The Mets open the 2011 season on the road at Florida and Philadelphia. And that means Mike Pelfrey, or whomever Terry Collins selects to start Opening Day opposite Josh Johnson, may very well draw Roy Halladay in Game 6 as well.

While the Mets are not done with their offseason additions, here is a look at the NL East rotations based on pitchers currently under control. (The Mets perhaps dodged a bullet when Zack Greinke reportedly declined a trade in place with the Nationals.) Johan Santana is expected to miss most, if not all, of the first half while recovering from shoulder surgery.
