This off-season has been pretty boring so far, but considering the lack of money the Front Office is willing to spend it is not surprising at all. I do like the signings of Kearns and Buck both of who will probably see some time in the the majors this year. And who knows, maybe the light goes on for Buck and he turns into Nelson Cruz a guy that everyone wrote off as a career minor leaguer and then found his stride. I don't really like the Everett signing just seems like if we needed an infielder that bad we should just let one of the the younger guys get some playing time.
Anyway I digress, the real reason for the post was to get peoples thoughts on our starting pitching situation. We have Carmona and Masterson then we have a mixed bag of potential. Most likely Carrasco and Talbot will secure two spots; leaving us a mixed bag for the last spot. This rotation screams out for another veteran pitcher in my opinion. There are some guys out there left that could be had for relatively cheap (I hate the Colon option). The guy that intrigues me the most in Jeff Francis he is a lefty that has had some injuries and 2 sub par years, but also had two outstanding years and I think could have a bounce back year. I was just wondering every ones opinion on the subject? Below is a list of available Free Agent Starters. Anyone, you would jump on or would you just let the young guys pitch?
