Spring questions: Where are they going to find five starters to fill out a respectable rotation? ... Will they hold onto closer Chad Cordero or revisit an offseason attempt to shop him for starting help. ... Will 1B Nick Johnson make it back from a badly broken femur by May 1 or will his absence drag on longer?
Phenom watch: What phenoms? OK, Cory Kasto has a shot at winning the LF job after a strong year at Double-A.
