Who will the Giants remove from the starting rotation when everyone's healthy?

Short answer: Not everyone is likely to all be healthy at the same time. Jake Peavy is pitching in the Giants' instructional league, now. After that, a rehab start or three. Then he would ostensibly would be ready to come back to the rotation. Matt Cain probably won't return quite as quickly, but he's hoping to come back at or around the All-Star break, possibly a little before.

Are you still bitter about the 2002 World Series?

Rank your pain on a scale of one-to-10. This subject is still a little raw. Apologies if it catches you at the wrong time, but, well, it's not my fault. The Angels are coming to town, you see. If you will recall, the Angels have won five of their last six games against the Giants, with the only win coming when Matt Cain threw 112 metaphors against Jerome Williams in 2012.
