He's young, he's improving, lots of innings, no prior health issues, good fastball and secondary pitches, American league and a lot of upside. I realize his walk rate is a high but he won't cost any prospects and even if he is signed to a John Danks type of contract it's still better than what a legitimate ace is going to cost (probably120-160mil over 7-8 years). Having a staff of aces doesn't guarantee a championship. I think having a well balanced team is more important.
Maybe Kuroda or Oswalt on 1 year deals.... I still think think Edwin is a pretty good option.
Before I get hammered about who is in the free agent class next year , I'm aware who's coming up but I think the costs are going to be sky high and they might not ever reach free agency. What are your thoughts?
