2013 Rotation

Buster Olney so optimistically posted his dream 2013 opening day Nationals lineup.  He had Rendon at 2nd, Desmond on the bench, Bryce Harper batting second in right, three question marks in center, and Prince Fielder at first.   That article is worth another post all together, but I'd like to look at the rotation.  

That lineup (with or without Fielder) would be pretty damn good.  I mean, Ramos and Espinosa batting seventh and eight, c'mon.  The rotation will be what determines the Nats' contention in 2013.  Here's what I'm thinking:

1. Liva... I mean, Stephen Strasburg

2. Jordan Zimmermann

3. Alex Meyer / Sammy Solis

4. Brad Peacock / A.J. Cole

5. Ross Detwiler / Cameron Selik / Maya

I've read that with Meyer's command issues, he may be destined to be a set-up man or closer.  Think Joba Chamberlain.  Hopefully not.  Peacock is embarrassing AA right now, but he's a two-pitch pitcher.  He needs secondary pitches to be successful in the majors.  The organization loves Detwiler, but he's playing himself out of the rotation in AAA right now.  Selik showed great potential with Hagerstown but has imploded in Potomac. There are serious questions with the back-end, not to mention the lack of experience, but the rotation might be loaded with young, homegrown talent.  Quite the contrast to years previous.  What are your thoughts?
