As much as I hate to agree with a SF fan about anything.....I do agree that trading either Cap or Harang is a good move.
Apply that savings to a 3-4 year deals for two good starters like Haren, Lohse, etc. it's our smartest move at this point. Yes, according to the numbers, our pitching did very well last year. I don't trust Cap and Harang to have a repeat of last years success.
If we sign two quality starters, likely for a little more than what Grienke may get per year (20+mil.) we are doing very well! Keep in mind that If we trade either Cap or Harang that reduces the price of the new guys contract. Also, next year the leftover of Cap/Harang will be gone as well which would keep the door open should Z.Lee be ready....or we go shopping.
We are set with our lineup. A staff of:
Kershaw, Bills, Beckett and 2 of Haren, Lohse, Sanchez, etc. would be lethal.
I really don't see Sanchez as a huge upgrade over Cap or Harang. I would stay away - not worth his likely price. Haren and Lohse...3 years each with a option for 4th...
